About the Inc. 5000
Inc.’s website outlines how the list has become a “hallmark of entrepreneurial success” since first introduced in 1982. Today, the Inc. 5000 honorees lay claim to a “distinguished editorial award, a celebration of innovation, a network of entrepreneurial leaders, and an effective public relations showcase” for private companies in the US. The group’s recognition affirms Empowerly’s hard work to reach students who need support during the college admissions journey.

The core of Empowerly’s services is the Best-Match College Counseling, in which counselors are carefully and thoughtfully selected from an elite group of college admissions professionals. The full suite of services includes extracurricular activities, valuable internship opportunities, and much more. In addition to hiring top college admissions counselors, our proprietary tech also stands out from the crowd. The Empowerly Portal is a student’s digital dashboard of tools with 24/7 access, as well as home to the Empowerly Score—a proprietary assessment tool that evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of a student’s overall college profile.
A gold star
On the list, Empowerly ranked 995th overall, 19th in the education industry, 156th in California, and 43rd in San Francisco, the company’s headquarters.
“This honor speaks to Empowerly’s exciting and consistent growth after the last few years, and further cements our platform as the go-to resource for college admissions,” said Hanmei Wu, Empowerly’s co-founder. “We are so proud to say that Empowerly has been there for families through thick and thin — from navigating the 500-to-1 student-to-college counselor ratio, providing advice around new standardized testing policies, and tackling the uncertainties of virtual classes and extracurriculars. This award is dedicated to our resilient students and their parents, as our mission is to make their lives easier and guide them on the path to success.”
