[Syracuse, New York] March 1, 2024—MarketDesign Consulting (MDCo) is thrilled to announce it has ranked No. 131 on Inc. Magazine's fourth annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: Northeast list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing Northeast private companies, based in Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New Jersey. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Northeast economy’s most dynamic segment–its independent small businesses. 

Since its inception in 2018, MarketDesign Consulting has seen steady year-over-year growth, evolving into a 7-figure business. From a promising startup, the company has transformed into a thriving consulting firm, increasing revenue by 182% from 2020 to 2023. Additionally, MarketDesign proudly contributed nearly $30,000 to cancer research over the past five years, true to its strong philanthropic vision. In January, 2024, the firm incorporated into the Compugen Group of Companies, a North American network of technology-driven entities. This strategic move reflects MarketDesign's commitment to reshaping the technology industry through brand differentiation, organizational alignment, and digital strategy. 



To see MarketDesign included on the Inc. 5000 Regionals for the first time is quite the honor and a testament to the incredible journey we've been on. At MDCo, we've never referred to ourselves as a marketing agency, because we are so much more. A small-and-mighty team of creatives and strategists who have spent their careers working in and for IT companies, I can confidently say that the MDCo team is the best in the business. As part of the Compugen Group of Companies, we are grateful for the opportunity to make an even deeper imprint in the industry, helping companies differentiate their brands and align people, processes, and platforms to their growth goals."
