Wisconsin-based Diamond Assets is the most trusted Apple hardware trade-up partner, working with schools and enterprises to maximize the residual value of their Apple devices. The company’s three-year growth rate was 19,717 percent. Click to Tweet.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within America’s most dynamic segment—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“Just four short years ago, we discovered that schools and businesses were missing out on a critical financial opportunity, as the concept of trading up tech devices was in its infancy and many organizations merely recycled their old technology,” said Mike McKenna, CEO of Diamond Assets. “We encouraged organizations to think differently about the lifespan of their technology, and to trade-up their technology by leveraging the value of their used Apple equipment to purchase new Apple products.”
Diamond Assets works with organizations to maximize the residual value of their Apple fleet through a turnkey trade-up program that pays organizations for their used Apple devices. This provides the funds necessary for future technology investments and puts organizations on a path to sustainable technology funding.
The 2018 Inc. 5000 list shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it is unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
