DefinedCrowd, a startup with Portuguese DNA, founded by Daniela Braga, was distinguished in the 27th place in the reputed Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing companies in the USA. In a statement, DefinedCrowd explains that success was achieved due to the "incredible 8550.28% revenue growth between 2016 and 2019".
 
Regarding this distinction, the Portuguese entrepreneur states: "Since the company was founded in 2015 with an initial investment of 200,000 dollars, our growth has been exponential". "Our rapidly growing customer base and the rapid expansion of services offered to our existing customers resulted in an impressive 656% growth in revenue, supported by a 176% growth in our global workforce in 2019 alone."
 
In the past, the Inc. 5000 list has distinguished companies in the technology world such as Zappos, Under Armor, Patagonia, or even Microsoft.
