There’s fast growth—and then there’s Inc. 500 fast growth. We’re thrilled to be ranked #229 on the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, #8 in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and #3 in the education industry!
Collectively, the companies on this year’s list amassed $206.2 billion in revenue in 2017 and had three-year revenue growth rates of 75,661 percent.
We couldn’t have achieved our growth without the amazing people on our team! Each employee contributes so much to our goal of pushing the boundaries of online learning.
What started as a passion for technology has grown into an international mission to change lives, one student at a time. Anthony James founded Linux Academy in 2012 while preparing for a Linux certification exam and struggling to learn through traditional training methods. His vision was to take the one-on-one attention of in-person training and pair it with the affordability and accessibility of self-paced online training—a category that didn’t exist yet. Working full-time as a systems engineer, he spent nights and weekends building the learning platform, coursework, and labs from scratch.
Next thing he knew, the site was helping tens of thousands of students pass Linux and cloud certifications and advance their careers. Linux Academy was founded on the belief that high-quality, in-depth training should be available at an affordable price, and we still follow that belief today. We’re proud to provide the highest-quality hands-on training for Linux and cloud technologies, and we look forward to growing and helping more students every day.
