Vibe Makes Inc. 5000 list for second year in a row!

Written by Lauren Nelson on October 31, 2019

We’re so excited to share that for the second year in a row, Vibe has made The Inc. 5000 list, coming in at 1095! Inc. 5000 recognizes the fastest-growing private companies in America and their contribution of jobs, innovative products and creativity to the national marketplace. 

Vibe first made their debut on the  Inc. 5000 list in 2018. Their extraordinary growth of 2,819% and revenue of $7M, landed them at #137 on the list! For the second consecutive year, with a 3 year growth of 383% and revenue of $10.3M, Vibe ranked #1095 on the Inc. 5000 list. This explosive growth happened in just 5 years of start up! According to Inc., only a fraction of the tens of thousands of companies that apply to be on the list make it more than once. Only one in four Inc. 5000 companies have made the list twice.

“We are incredibly excited to be a part of the Inc. 5000 list again,” said Josh Thomas, founding partner at Vibe. “We’ve continued to see amazing growth within the industry, expanded our product line and our Vibe Tribe community has supported us and has grown along with us. It’s been an incredible ride.”

Vibe started in 2013 to capture the middle market of kayak prices, between the low-cost beginner kayaks found in popular retail stores and expensive kayaks that dominate independent paddle shops. With a motto of “No drama. Just adventure.”, Vibe has increased progress by encouraging a positive community among employees, customers and partners. Many members of the Vibe Tribe are a part of the Facebook owner’s group of over 14k active users who give each other advice on the topics of fishing and exploration. On Instagram, with a follower-base of 36k, users share photos of the fish they catch on their Vibe kayaks and how they customize their boats. 

Celebrate with us by taking your Vibe kayak out this week, catching something rad and patting yourself on the back for being a part of this wild journey with us!
