"Making it onto the Inc. 5000 three consecutive years validates both our business and our technology. This is a tribute to our employees, our growing customer base of community colleges, private and public colleges and online universities – and the students we serve," said Vincent Forese, President, Link-Systems International.

"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 or a team of them. 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."

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX.
