Rare Patient Voice ranks on the Inc 5000

Healthcare News North America

US Rare Patient Voice has been ranked as number 3,981 on Inc magazine’s annual 5000 list, a list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.


The list is said to represent a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment, its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honourees on the Inc 5000.

The companies on the 2022 Inc 5000 have demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labour shortages and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years to the US economy. 

Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. In the case of Rare Patient Voice, the company has demonstrated three-year revenue growth of 122%.

“Our mission at Rare Patient Voice is to help patients and caregivers share their opinions and experiences with researchers and companies working on life-changing innovations”, said president and founder Wes Michael.

“When I launched RPV in 2013, I had no idea the reception this simple idea would receive. Since then, we’ve grown to a community of over 100,000 across more than 700 rare and non-rare diseases and expanded to nine countries and counting.

“This is our second year being recognized by Inc and this honour reinforces the fact that the patient voice is being requested and heard by researchers and pharma companies, which is truly gratifying.”
