San Francisco, CA - August 13, 2015 - Swrve, the mobile marketing technology company that pioneered the fast-growing mobile engagement marketing space, today announced it has ranked #420 in Inc. magazine’s 34th annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.
“It’s an honor to be recognized alongside some of the country’s most innovative and groundbreaking private companies,” said Christopher Dean, chief executive officer of Swrve. “The Swrve platform and new Predictive Suite are carving the path for mobile marketers to transform the way they bid for mobile engagement and user context. We thank our outstanding team, our customers, and our partners for making Swrve’s success possible.”
The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 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 story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”
Driven by growth in revenue and bookings, and significant new customer wins in North America and Europe, Swrve is poised to quickly become a global standard for mobile marketing and engagement, as evidenced by the addition of 40 new clients in the first half of 2015, a 33% quarterly increase in global bookings in Q2 2015, and 153% over Q4 2014.
