SAN DIEGO, CA – August 12, 2020 – Inc. magazine today revealed that GoProto has been ranked #3 in the Manufacturing segment, and #57 overall which is the highest ever for an additive manufacturing company, on its annual Inc. 5000 list, with an impressive growth rate of 5366%.
The Inc. 5000 list is a prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, representing the most successful independent businesses within the United States. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Jesse Lea, President of GoProto, says:
“I am proudest that we were are a private business with minimal funding and we were able to build GoProto on the manufacturing success of our amazing customers and the hard work of our fantastic team members”.
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
