Bow Wow Labs Named to Inc. Magazine’s Prestigious 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

The maker of safety devices, chews and treats ranks No. 684th.




(PRESS RELEASE) AUSTIN, TX — Bow Wow Labs, inventors of the life-protecting Bow Wow Buddy and innovators of unique pet products that help keep pets safe, healthy and happy, is honored to be recognized and awarded the 2023 Inc. 5,000, Inc.’s prestigious list of America’s fastest-growing private companies.

Officially ranked 684th on the Inc. 5,000 list based on the brand’s achievements in innovation and safety, and ranked 43rd over all Consumer Goods companies. This is due to an impressive revenue growth, which was centered around Bow Wow Labs’ mission of saving pets’ lives with safety solutions like the award-winning life protecting Bow Wow Buddy as well as launching the next generation of long-term chews for dogs – the Epic Chew – in Fall 2023.

In addition to this honor, Bow Wow Labs, Inc. recently reached a major milestone with their 2022-2023 Wefunder crowdfunding campaign – becoming the crowdfunding platform’s most successful pet product campaign on-record and also achieving a position in the platform’s top 10% raised in the last 12 months.

The annual Inc. 5000 List represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment-its independent small businesses. The 2023 Inc. 5000 list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists and achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent.

“We are thrilled and honored to be included in the 2023 Inc. 5,000 fastest growing private companies in America. I am both humbled and incredibly proud of the Bow Wow Labs Team as it is through their dedication and tireless work that we have earned this rank on this list of distinguished organizations. We are excited to think about what is to come as we continue our pursuit of serving pet parents in helping them keep their beloved dogs safe, happy and healthy.” states Brian O’Neil, chief operating officer of Bow Wow Labs.

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.
