There are lots of great things about the number five. Typical work weeks have five days. Five is the atomic number of the chemical element, boron. Starfish have five legs, the Olympics symbol has five interlocked rings, and there’s always Maroon 5.
It’s also a number that we’re loving at Dimagi today. We just learned that, for the fifth year in a row, we made the Inc 5000 list as one of America’s top 5,000 fastest growing companies. We’re especially excited to do this as a social enterprise and benefit corporation – and are looking forward to learning how many other B Corps this year made the Inc 5000 list. Last year that number was 26 B Corps, any guesses for what it will be this year?
