Smart Rain Named to Inc. 5000 List of America's Fastest-Growing Companies

August 18, 2022

With a three-year revenue growth of 573%, Smart Rain was recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the US.

Seven million businesses are considered for the 2022 Inc. 5000 list and those that are ranked are within the top .07% of the fastest-growing private companies nationwide. Well-known companies, including Microsoft, Oracle, Patagonia and Zappos.com, have all previously been recognized on the Inc. 5000 list.

Following their 2021 Inc. 500 listing, this prestigious award reflects more than a decade of Smart Rain's commitment to developing new technologies for water conservation strategies and water management solutions. 

Founder Rudy Larsen credits his team for believing in the product and having an “all in” mentality during one of the company's most pivotal decisions back in 2019. That was the year Smart Rain acquired Weather Reach and began integrating the two dynamic technologies. The integration led to the development of unique products that would catapult the success of the business that is being celebrated today.
