In the 35 years that Inc. has been tracking America’s fastest-growing private companies, only a select group of organizations have accomplished this feat. In making the list, BlackLine joins such prestigious brands as Microsoft, Jamba Juice and Patagonia.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

BlackLine provides a host of tightly integrated applications and packaged solutions that automate and accelerate the financial close and other key Finance & Accounting processes – from within a single, unified cloud-based platform. Leading companies of all sizes are now implementing financial controls and automation solutions as part of their efforts to transform legacy, back-office operations into world-class, Modern Finance organizations with greater efficiencies and reduced compliance risk.
