Inc. Magazine Names AvePoint to the Inc. 500|5000 List of Fastest Growing American Companies for the Fourth Consecutive Year
AvePoint ranks on the Inc. 500|5000 list with a three-year sales growth of 241%
Jersey City, New Jersey — August 22, 2013 — AvePoint, the leader in governance, compliance, and management solutions for social enterprise collaboration platforms, announced today that it has once again made Inc. magazine’s Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. It is the fourth straight year that AvePoint has made the Inc. 500|5000, joining brands such as Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft and Jamba Juice on the 2013 edition.
“It’s a tremendous honor and accomplishment for AvePoint to be named to the Inc. 500|5000 for the fourth consecutive year,” said Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, AvePoint Co-CEO and Co-Founder. “We have continued to invest heavily in every aspect of our business as we strive to deliver the best products and services in the industry while continuing to expand our market presence on a global scale. This recognition is verification that our strategy is working, and we are humbled to receive this honor once again in 2013.”
Inc. magazine has welcomed the fastest-growing companies in America into this exclusive club for 32 years, and in 2013, the Inc. 500|5000 was harder to get into than ever. Organizations were ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2009 to 2012, with the minimum revenue requirement increased in 2012 to twenty times that of 2009.
"Not all the companies in the Inc. 500|5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy,” says Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.
