Inc. magazine today revealed that Scientist.com, the world’s largest enterprise marketplace for outsourced R&D services, ranked no. 289 on its Inc. 5000 list, the prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The annual ranking, now in its 38th year, represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy. Microsoft, Dell, Pandora, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“Our mission at Scientist.com is to empower and connect scientists worldwide – and make it possible to cure all human diseases by 2050,” stated Kevin Lustig, PhD, Scientist.com’s CEO and Founder. “We are succeeding because of the hard work, talent and dedication of our incredible employees.”

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
