GCubed Ranks No. 40 on the Inaugural 2020 Inc. 5000 Series: D.C. Metro!

Today Inc. magazine revealed that GCubed is No. 40 on its inaugural Inc. 5000 Series: D.C. Metro list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the D.C. Metro economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. GCubed Founder & CEO Vernon Green Jr. says,

“To rank amongst the highly competitive companies in the Washington, D.C. market is a tremendous accomplishment! It is GCubed’s “mission over self” philosophy and “people over money” mentality that have paved the way for our accomplishments. Our team is a collection of amazing people who internalize our mission, vision, and values, and create innovative ways to execute them daily. We are truly grateful for this honor and hope to collaborate with other like-minded businesses in the DC area. Thank you!”

The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in the D.C. metropolitan area. Between 2016 and 2018, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 196 percent and, in 2018 alone, they employed over 88,000 people and added $6.5 billion in revenue to the greater D.C. area’s economy. Companies based in the Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Richmond, Virginia, metro areas brought in the highest revenue overall.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000 Series: D.C. Metro, including an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, metro area, and other criteria, can be found at

GCubed Founder & CEO Honored by Stafford County Board of Supervisors

Congratulations to our Founder & CEO Vernon Green Jr. for being recognized by the Stafford County Board of Supervisors on February 18, 2020 for his contributions to our community! Mr. Green shared a statement about the honor:

“Last night I had the honor and privilege to be recognized by the Stafford County Board of Supervisors for our contributions to our community. I am grateful and humbled by the recognition and the lady I shared the stage with LIVED history! Mrs. Jackson is 88 years old, all here in Stafford and was one of the graduates of the all black high school in Fredericksburg when Stafford didn’t allow blacks in high school. To share the stage with her was an honor! Further, to see the women and minorities sit on the Board shows the progress Stafford has made.

I want to thank my family for their support! I want to thank my team for all of the hard work that goes into all we do. I may have received the award but it is a team win! I want to thank the Stafford Board of Supervisors for this honor. And finally, I want to thank the Stafford community, partner organizations, teaches, counselors; all those we work with to make a difference in our community!
Thank you!”
