We made Inc. 5000!


Julia Balfour, LLC Named to the 37th Annual Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies.

The JB Team, August 15, 2018

Connecticut-based digital agency, Julia Balfour, LLC, is proud to announce its inclusion in the 2018 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America.

This recognition comes just seven years after Julia Balfour, Founder and CEO of Julia Balfour, LLC, established the company in her backyard. Balfour’s dream was to inspire clients to see potential in their digital environments and to work together to turn that vision into a reality. Now, the agency joins an elite group that, over the years, has included companies such as Microsoft, Oracle, Under Armour, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, and Zillow.

“We are so proud to be on the Inc. 5000 list. When I started this company back in 2011, I used the Inc. 5000 list as a source for potential clients and a roadmap to profitability,” expressed Balfour. “I studied each winner; researching their business models, teams, and growth patterns. 

“I couldn’t be more grateful to all of our clients for helping us reach this milestone,” Julia added.

This year’s Inc. 5000 induction comes after Julia Balfour, LLC has seen a three-year growth of over 400%, ranking the agency in the top 22% of nominees at number 1,129. In addition, the company has added 25% more positions over the last two years and more than doubled its office space by relocating headquarters from Lyme to East Haddam, CT in 2016.

“As we’ve grown, our team has used the Inc. 5000 list to forecast trends within the digital markets. Research is the foundation of what we do as a digital agency and we’re so proud to join the elite group of companies we’ve been watching for so long,” stated Caitlin Monahan, Head of Accounts who has been with Julia Balfour, LLC for five years.

To qualify for the award, companies must be privately owned, established and generating revenue in the first quarter of 2014 or earlier, and garnered revenue at a minimum of $2 million in 2017.

“We’ve had our targets set on the Inc. 5000 list for years now,” stated Alyssa Puzzo, Head of Content Strategy at Julia Balfour, LLC. “When you do your research, take calculated risks, and work hard, positive outcomes like these are great validators of our process.”
