Fastest-Growing Private Companies
Kindred Bravely is honored to be named #20 on Inc. Magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—independent small businesses. 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.
“Being recognized by this organization confirms that we can be generous and profitable, encouraging and enterprising. From the clothes we make to the community we’re creating, we’re dedicated to lifting women up and helping them make their lives better,” said Deeanne Akerson, Co-Founder and CEO of Kindred Bravely.
Kindred Bravely, founded in 2015 in Oceanside, California, ranked #20 on the 2019 Inc. 5000 with three-year revenue growth of 8,544%. The maternity and nursing apparel company was also named #4 Top California companies, #1 Top San Diego companies, and #5 Top Consumer Products & Services companies.
The companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 have been very competitive within their markets, and the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” said Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”

The company has two missions: creating maternity and nursing clothes that are beautiful, useful, and comfortable; and building a community of moms who support and encourage each other on the motherhood journey. Staffed by a remote team of mostly work-from-home moms and bringing in over $9.6 Million in 2018, Kindred Bravely is a case study in female entrepreneurship and innovation.
