Nylas Named to Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the Second Consecutive Year

Continued growth, Series C funding, and new product enhancements are key drivers to Nylas’ ranking

SAN FRANCISCO – August 18, 2021 – Nylas, provider of communications  APIs for business productivity automation, today announced their listing on Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies list for the second consecutive year. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy. Nylas secured its position on the list for the second straight year after seeing tremendous growth, including a $120 million Series C investment led by Tiger Global, and surpassing 100,000 developers on the Nylas platform.

“Software developers today are not only being tasked with building more complex and innovative products and features, they are increasingly being asked to do so in shorter development cycles. That’s where Nylas comes in,” said Gleb Polyakov, Co-Founder & CEO, Nylas. “Our platform arms developers with the structured communications data needed to efficiently build automated and intelligent workflows that reduce time to market, create modern experiences, and increase productivity. As a result, we’ve seen tremendous growth and adoption of our platform and are honored to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 list for the second year in a row.”

Fueling Nylas’ growth has been the rise of the API economy and adoption of APIs as part of businesses’ digital transformation strategies to increase productivity, streamline global operations, and leverage cutting-edge technologies to drive innovation. According to a recent survey from RapidAPI, 71.1% of developers expect to use more APIs this year than in 2020, while an additional 21.2% plan to use the same amount.  

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2021 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
