90 Houston companies make the Inc. 5000 list

Texas entrepreneurs showed their resilience during an unpredictable, and often challenging year for business, with 426 companies in the state earning a spot on the newly unveiled Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.

Inc. ranked 5,000 companies by percentage revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. Eight of the top 100 were from Texas, including Houston-based Homestead Brands at No. 98. It was one of 91 companies based in the Houston area to make the list.

Homestead Brands, an online retailer of the Lori Wall Bed, an affordably priced Murphy bed that consumers assemble themselves, saw its revenue grow by more than 3,900 percent during the period. The wooden bed, which can be stored upright, doubles as shelving.
