2021 Inc. 5000 List Press Release

RAIN Group Named to the 2021 Inc. 5000 List

Global sales training company recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies.


BOSTONAugust 17, 2021 – RAIN Group, a global sales training company delivering award-winning results through in-person and virtual sales training, coaching, and reinforcement, announced today it is named to the 2021 Inc. 5000 list.

Known as the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America, RAIN Group secured a spot on the list for achieving a three-year revenue growth of 93%.

“It’s an honor to be recognized on this reputable list,” shared Mike Schultz, president at RAIN Group. “Despite the turmoil that started in 2020, RAIN Group continues to grow rapidly both domestically and abroad. We’ve been successful across the globe, helping clients like Medtronic, Toyota, BDO, Canon, Optus, and others improve their sales results.”

RAIN Group's growth has been fueled by the impressive results achieved with clients around improving win rates, increasing revenue, filling the pipeline, growing accounts, and improving sales margins. This latest honor joins a list of awards and recognition from Selling Power, Training Industry, Brandon Hall, and the Stevie Awards based on customer satisfaction and sales training initiative outcomes.

A major contributor to the company's growth over the last year was the introduction of a modern, virtual training approach, and the launch of Virtual Selling Imperatives, a curriculum aimed at helping sellers succeed in the new sales environment.

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. Together, these 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 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.”
