Mediafly Secures Placement On Inc. 5000 For 5th Consecutive year
CHICAGO, August 15, 2018 – Inc. magazine today revealed that sales enablement platform, Evolved Selling™ solution provider and technology company, Mediafly was recognized as one of America’s fastest-growing companies for the fifth time on its 37th annual Inc. 5000, 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 businesses. With a growth rate of 68 percent, Mediafly continues to make strides to be considered as one of America’s fastest-growing companies.
“Inc. Magazine’s 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies is an award we strive for every year. As with all of our accolades, it’s not something that we expect, but something that we work as a team to earn,” said Carson Conant, co-founder and CEO at Mediafly. “Being selected five years in a row is a true testament to our team for their hard work, diligence and perseverance in creating a sales enablement solution that meet the needs of sales teams across industries. By ranking on the Inc. 5000, our team is motivated to continue advancing our solutions for current and future customers.”
Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 15) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 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.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
