We’re thrilled to announce that Noble Studios has been named to Inc. magazine’s 2023 Best in Business list in the Advertising category! 

This prestigious honor goes to companies making an extraordinary positive impact in their industries and communities.

“At Noble, we live by the mantra ‘Let’s Be Better Every Day’ — to keep improving our creative impact for clients while pushing ourselves as purpose-driven professionals,” said Jarrod Lopiccolo, Noble’s CEO. “Making Inc.’s Best in Business list tells us we’re on that journey in the right direction.”

How We Stood Out Among Thousands

Out of thousands of applicants, Noble Studios stood out for our work driving sustainable tourism progress, company culture and through our 10 years of philanthropic work with Noble Deeds. 

Rather than judging on quantitative metrics like sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed applicants on their real-world impact and advancement of social good over the past year.

As Inc. Special Projects Editor Eric Hagerman noted, “Being named to the Best in Business list is a rare and special honor. These honorees demonstrate the foresight, caring, and dedication to prioritize positive impact — impact on their community, on their industry and the environment, and even on society as a whole.” 

Building Upon a Legacy with Inc.

This isn’t Noble Studios’ first time receiving accolades from Inc. magazine. 

We were named to the Inc. 500/5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies for five consecutive years. This exclusive ranking highlights businesses experiencing rapid expansion and placed us among an elite group of entrepreneurial trailblazers leading innovation and job creation.

Additionally, Noble Studios co-founders Jarrod and Season Lopiccolo served as Co-Executive Directors on Inc.’s San Francisco/Silicon Valley Business Owners Council. In this leadership role, they connected with fellow pioneering founders across sectors to discuss opportunities and obstacles facing businesses. 

But we’re especially proud to receive the Inc. Best in Business designation for driving meaningful impact beyond quick commercial success. This honor reflects our commitment to growing sustainably through creative campaigns focused on positive progress.

How Winners Were Carefully Selected

Over the past year, editors reviewed applicants across industries on their social and environmental contributions beyond sales and funding numbers. 

Honorees were also grouped into age, revenue, size and impact-based groupings. By considering such qualitative measures of business excellence, the Best in Business list in its fourth year continues redefining success beyond the bottom line. 

Regardless of specific category, those selected represent the vanguard of purpose-driven business committed to progress over profits. Every 2023 honoree demonstrates that competitive differentiation now comes from bettering communities outside the office as much as dominating markets inside it.

Recognition like the Best in Business list proves businesses can — and must — use their influence to move the cultural needle.
