Black Spectacles Named an Inc. 5000 America's Fastest Growing Company

Black Spectacles, an online learning platform for architects,  was named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Companies. The Inc. 5000 list has become known as the premier metric for entrepreneurial success. As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Black Spectacles now shares a pedigree with Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, GoPro, Timberland, Clif Bar, Patagonia, Oracle, Box, Grubhub, and dozens of other alumni that have gone on to become household names. 

“It is humbling and thrilling to be named one of the Inc. 5000 fastest growing companies in America. Some of the most successful companies in the history of American business have been on this list,” states Marc Teer, founder and CEO of Black Spectacles. “Early in my career as an architect, I experienced the lack of online educational resources available. Black Spectacles was founded to provide a platform where architects can gain the knowledge needed to grow in the profession,” recalls Teer. “We are proud to support the architects in their journey to success!”
