Inc. Magazine Names AvePoint to the Inc. 500|5000 List of Fastest Growing American Companies for the Fifth Consecutive Year
AvePoint ranks on the Inc. 500|5000 list with a three-year sales growth of 115%
Jersey City, New Jersey — August 27, 2014 —AvePoint, the established leader in enterprise-class management, governance, and compliance software solutions for next-generation social collaboration platforms, announced today that it has made Inc. magazine’s Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, for the fifth consecutive year. AvePoint joins brands such as Alex and Ani, Gazelle, GoDaddy.com, and Euro-Pro on the 2014 edition.
This underscores continued growth and expansion for AvePoint as it evolves from providing infrastructure management solutions for SharePoint to offering compliance, data governance, mobility and productivity, and online services solutions that help stitch together the growing number of disparate collaboration systems and data repositories to enable enterprise collaboration with confidence.
“It’s a tremendous honor and accomplishment for AvePoint to be named to the Inc. 500|5000 for the fifth consecutive year,” said Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, AvePoint Co-CEO and Co-Founder. “We’ve continued to invest in every aspect of our business to ensure we are providing the best solutions, services, and support in the industry. This accolade is further proof that our approach is working, and inspiration for us to continue tirelessly working to help enterprises stay ahead of the technology trends disrupting the way they conduct business today.”
Inc. magazine has welcomed the fastest-growing companies in America into this exclusive club for 33 years, and in 2014, the Inc. 500|5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. Organizations were ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013, with the minimum revenue requirement increased in 2013 to twenty times that of 2010.
"What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
