Infusionsoft Joins Exclusive Two Percent of Companies to be Recognized by the Inc. 500 | 5000 list Six Years in a Row
(Gilbert, AZ - Aug. 27, 2012) - Inc. magazine today ranked Infusionsoft on its annual Inc. 500 | 5000 list, a prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. This accomplishment is sweetened by the fact that only two percent of all companies who have ever made this list have been acknowledged six times consecutively. The company has 10,000 customers and 36,000 users spread across 70 countries. Infusionsoft has zeroed in on the expansive, global small business market, and offers an all-in-one sales and marketing software that helps these companies compete and grow.
“We are zealous about entrepreneurship and the success of small businesses. Our entire vision is set around this principle,” said Clate Mask, co-founder and CEO of Infusionsoft. "We consider making the list not once, but six times, to be an especially meaningful tribute to the strides we have made as a company and innovator.”
In addition to supplying the Infusionsoft all-in-one sales and marketing solution to small businesses, Infusionsoft has created a community that gives small businesses access to free advice and strategic insight. This summer the company launched its Small Business Success Tour, a free event showing up in major cities across the country and in London. Hundreds of small business owners are coming to the one-day sessions to hear real use cases and best practices from entrepreneurs who have succeeded. Infusionsoft believes entrepreneurs are at the core of America's growing economy, and strives to be a driver of small business success.
"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500 | 5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. editor, Eric Schurenberg.
In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2012 Inc. 500 | 5000 companies remains an impressive 97 percent. The companies on this year's list report having created over 400,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $299 billion. The Inc. 500 | 5000 Conference and Awards Ceremony will take place in October in Infusionsoft's hometown of Phoenix, Arizona. The ceremony will include keynote speeches, educational breakout sections, networking opportunities, and events geared toward the companies who made it onto this year's list.
