RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (August 17, 2021) — Inc. Magazine today revealed Keen Decision Systems reached  1,601 on its 2021 list of the fastest-growing private companies. This marks the company’s third consecutive year on Inc.’s prestigious ranking. 

Keen entered the listing in 2019 at 3,200, moving up to 2,308 in 2020 and now beating its debut by half in 2021. 

“I am incredibly proud of our company’s tremendous, sustained growth trajectory, which is grounded in our commitment to the success of the clients we serve,” CEO and co-founder Greg Dolan said. “Our future-focused marketing planning platform radically changes and de-risks the way marketing decisions get made and the value they deliver. As more marketers experience the power and necessity of AI/machine-learning enabled guidance to navigate the increasingly complex marketing-investment decision making process, the adoption of Keen’s solution continues to accelerate. We also are fortunate to have an outstanding, committed team that works tirelessly to deliver value to our clients.”

Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing.”
