NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine today revealed that Sunderstorm is No. 319 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Sunderstorm increased its revenue by 400% over the past two years. In late 2020 the Los Angeles-based company entered into a licensing agreement in Canada, and later expanded to Colorado, Massachusetts, and Nevada in 2021. Sunderstorm was also recognized by the American Business Awards® in 2021 for being the first cannabis company to partner with HBO Max ahead of the network's "Close Enough" series launch. The joint marketing campaign featured four custom Kanha cannabis branded gummy products that reflected the personalities of each main character and won a Bronze Stevie® Award, opening a new door for future mainstream cannabis marketing opportunities.

"This is a tremendous milestone for Sunderstorm; since 2015, we have made it our mission to deliver the most dependable and compelling products in the cannabis market," said Cameron Clarke, Co-Founder and CEO of Sunderstorm. "This accomplishment exemplifies the efforts of the entire Sunderstorm staff who have invested their diverse talents into building a truly sophisticated cannabis brand."

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year's list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020's unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.

"The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled," says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. "Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we've lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people."

More about Inc. and the Inc. 5000

Methodology
Companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2017. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2020. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2017 is $100,000; the minimum for 2020 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to three decimal places. There was one tie on this year's Inc. 5000. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.'s September issue.
