Since 1982, Inc. has released its list of the 5,000 fastest-growing, privately held businesses. The decades-old list has served as an entry point for big-name companies like Pandora and Toys ‘R’ Us to receive accreditation for their successes. On Tuesday, the company released its 2022 Inc. 5000 list and 154 Massachusetts companies made the cut. 

The list is composed of U.S.-based companies ranked by their percentage revenue growth between 2018 and 2021. Of the 5,000 companies on the list, 136 are based in Boston. 

Read on to learn more about the six Boston tech companies that led the way in this year’s Inc. 5000 list. (Wondering how Boston faired last year? Take a look.)
