This week Inc. Magazine unveiled the 36th annual list of America’s fastest-growing private companies – the Inc. 5000. We are thrilled to announce that for the second year in a row, Simpli.fi has been recognized for growth. Clocking in at No. 1352 with a three-year sales growth of 301%, this recognition points to the growing investment of advertisers in Simpli.fi’s unique offering and the power of bringing programmatic to localized campaigns.
We want to thank our fantastic clients for your partnership. A heartfelt thank you also to our entire team for all that you do to propel Simpli.fi forward in programmatic innovation and delivering great care and service to our clients.
The 36th annual Inc. 5000 is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“Simpli.fi is honored to be recognized for the second year running as a member of the Inc. 5000,” said Frost Prioleau, CEO of Simpli.fi. “As the programmatic industry matures, it becomes increasingly more important for advertisers to reach their buyers across channels and locations and to attribute the success of their campaigns. Simpli.fi’s mobile advertising solutions have been hugely important to our growth and allow us to combine highly accurate targeting with pronounced scalability and industry-leading attribution so our clients can achieve their goals.”
The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 16) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
We can’t wait to join our colleagues for the annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list on October 10 through 12, 2017 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, CA. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as former Ford president Alan Mullaly, FUBU CEO and founder and “Shark Tank” star Daymond John, Dollar Shave Club founder Michael Dubin, researcher and #1 New York Times bestseller Brené Brown, and Gravity Payments’ founder and CEO Dan Price.
