When we look back over the past year, we are so grateful for the growth we experienced in many areas of the business. In addition to the conferences and events we attended and the launch of our newest breakthrough technology, Product Consumption Intelligence, we are thrilled to have won several awards throughout 2022. These include a ranking on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 2022 list, a Chicago Innovation Award, and a spot on the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies list. We are so thankful for our customers, partners, and stakeholders – this wouldn’t be possible without them. 

Learn more about the accolades we’ve received this past year! 

Inc. Regionals 

To begin the year, QualSights landed a top spot on the Inc. 5000 Regional list—a list ranking the fastest-growing companies in different regions of the U.S. by revenue. QualSights was ranked the #1 fastest-growing company in Illinois by Inc. Additionally, we were ranked the #1 fastest-growing software company in the Midwest, and the #4 overall fastest-growing company in the Midwest. 

Financial Times Fastest Growing Companies in the Americas 

On Financial Times and Statista’s list of fastest-growing companies in the Americas by revenue, QualSights was ranked the #57 fastest-growing company, just one spot above Zoom. We were also ranked the 12th fastest-growing tech company. 

Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies 

In August, the Inc. 5000 list (Inc.’s list of the 5000 fastest-growing companies in the US by revenue) was released. QualSights was ranked as the #1 fastest-growing insights platform, #9 fastest-growing software company, and #94 fastest-growing company overall. 

The GRIT Report 

One of the most prestigious reports in the insights industry, the GreenBook GRIT Report is an in-depth analysis of the most innovative and trusted research suppliers. In our first year being featured in the report, QualSights was ranked the #11 most innovative supplier and the #1 qualitative research provider. We’re grateful to be in good company among 49 of GRIT’s most innovative research companies. 

Chicago Innovation Awards 2022 

The Chicago Innovation Awards honor the most innovative companies in the Chicago area. This year, QualSights was a winner of the Chicago Innovation Award for established companies with the added distinction of being this year’s SMS Assist Entrepreneurial Spirit Award winner.

Deloitte Technology Fast 500 2022 

For nearly 30 years, Deloitte has recognized the fastest-growing public and private tech companies in North America. Winners are selected based on the largest percentage growth in revenue over the past three years. This year, QualSights was ranked the 37th fastest-growing company in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500.  

We are beyond grateful to our team, all our partners, our stakeholders, and everyone else who has supported us throughout this journey. We couldn’t have done it without your constant support and encouragement, and we can’t wait to continue innovating in the consumer insights space with you in 2023!
