NEW YORK, August 23, 2011 — Inc. Magazine has unveiled its 30th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 500. The magazine has ranked SurveyGizmo NO. 144 on Inc. 500 List, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500.
The 2011 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23 and on Inc.com), is a group of companies that are smaller but much faster-growing than last year’s crop. Aggregate revenue is $10.5 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,275 percent. The companies on this year’s list employ more than 46,000 people and generated over 35,000 jobs in the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 500, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on Inc.com/500.
Boulder, Colorado-based SurveyGizmo was founded in 2006 and is NO. 13 among software companies in the Inc. 500. The company provides robust online survey software used by researchers and small to enterprise companies to create online surveys, questionnaires and forms. A technology innovator, its API provides easy integration of its data collection platform with external enterprise software. Today SurveyGizmo’s powerful technology is integrated with dozens of enterprise class software applications. The company delivers award-winning customer support to its 150,000 users, including live phone support and dedicated account management by survey experts.
The 2011 Inc. 500 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2007 to 2010. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2007. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2010. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2007 is $100,000; the minimum for 2010 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at www.inc.com/500.
