August 15, 2023
Strong Results Celebrate Novel Financing’s Rapid Ascent & Mission-Driven Homeowner Advocacy
BOSTON – August 15, 2023 – Hometap, the Boston-based financial technology company that has provided more than 8,000 American homeowners with an innovative, debt-free way to access their home equity, today is pleased to announce its inclusion, at 66th position, in the prestigious Inc. 5000 listing, a nationally-recognized program showcasing the country’s fastest-growing privately companies in the United States.
At 66, debutant Hometap has received an extremely strong place – just outside the top percentile – in the program, which over the years has included Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands.
The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven “rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges,” Inc. said as it revealed the listing today in New York. Tracking this year’s highest 500 companies in the ranking, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to 2,238 percent. In aggregate the entire group of 5000 has added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.
“To make the Inc. 5000–with the fast growth that requires–is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future,” added Editor-in-Chief for Inc. Scott Omelianuk.
In addition to the 66th overall ranking, Hometap received additional Inc. 5000 recognition across its categories, including landing the top overall position among all Boston-based companies and coming second among real estate category entrants across the country.
An honoree for the first time, Hometap is scaling its offering by adding new knowledge tools for homeowners and enterprise capabilities to its platform, in addition to its pioneering home equity investment (HEI) product that is available in 16 states around the country.
As the HEI model proves its durability and appeal with homeowners, Hometap has likewise secured new and diversified sources of asset capital in 2023 and built a dedicated arm for capital markets engagement.
“We are delighted to join the 2023 Inc. 5000. The honor is a reflection of Hometap’s platform growth and a well-earned testament to the incredible work of our team, their dedication to our mission, and tireless efforts to help American homeowners fund the priorities in their lives,” says Hometap CEO and Cofounder Jeffrey Glass. “Many of the world’s biggest brands began their journey on the Inc. 5000, often as scrappy, fast-growing companies with a novel idea and a commitment to bringing it to life, and we aspire to join those lasting businesses in the pursuit of our mission to make homeownership less stressful and more accessible. We are grateful to earn this top 100 achievement in 2023, and will continue to build innovative financial products, mutually beneficial partnerships and cutting-edge technology.”
According to Inc., included companies on the 2023 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2019 to 2022. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2019. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2022. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2019 is $100,000; the minimum for 2022 is $2 million.
