In an impressive and continued demonstration of growth, PadSplit has earned the #57 spot on the Financial Times’ prestigious list of The Americas’ Fastest-Growing Companies 2024. This annual ranking, now in its fifth year, celebrates companies across the Americas that have achieved extraordinary revenue growth between 2019 and 2022.

As a social impact company, I’ve always believed that awards are not a measure of our success, but it’s certainly nice to see the external validation, and we appreciate this recognition from the Financial Times,” said founder Atticus LeBlanc. “What I’m most proud of are the life-changing stories we hear from PadSplit’s members every day — stories about finding a home after homelessness, saving enough to purchase a home, or finding the stability so many of us take for granted. I’m grateful to our team, hosts, and partners for believing in our mission, and we’ll continue to try to change the world, one room at a time!”

The journey to recognition

The Financial Times, in collaboration with Statista, meticulously compiled the list by analyzing companies’ compound annual growth rates (CAGR) in revenue over the specified period. The rigorous methodology ensures that only the most dynamic and fast-growing companies are recognized. PadSplit’s inclusion at #57 underscores its significant revenue expansion and impactful presence in the market.

Understanding the ranking criteria

The FT Americas’ Fastest-Growing Companies list is not a mere reflection of the size of economies but rather a showcase of innovation and transparency among high-growth businesses. The criteria for inclusion are stringent:

  • Companies must have generated at least $100,000 in overall revenue in 2019 and at least $1.5 million in 2022.
  • The growth must be primarily organic, driven internally rather than through acquisitions.
  • Companies must be independent entities headquartered in one of 20 eligible American countries.

This year’s ranking saw a minimum CAGR of 9% to qualify, highlighting the competitive nature of the list.

The significance of PadSplit’s achievement

PadSplit’s ranking is a testament to its innovative business model and commitment to addressing critical housing issues. By offering affordable shared housing solutions, PadSplit has not only expanded its market presence but also made a meaningful impact on communities, providing affordable and flexible living arrangements for individuals in need.

Competing with giants

While the list features some of the most recognizable names in the industry, including Amazon, Alphabet, Pfizer, and Tesla, it also brings to light several lesser-known yet rapidly growing companies. PadSplit’s ability to secure a spot among these heavyweights is a significant accomplishment, reflecting its strategic growth and market relevance.

Methodology and transparency

The compilation of this list involved extensive research and a thorough validation process by Statista. Companies had to submit verified revenue figures, which were then processed and checked for accuracy. This level of scrutiny ensures that the ranking is both credible and reflective of genuine growth.
