SportsSignup is proud to make our first appearance on the Inc. Magazine 500/5000 list of the nation’s fastest growing private companies, ranked at #1687 with a three-year sales growth of 171%. The list represents a look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent entrepreneurs. SportsSignup’s inaugural appearance in the ranking is even more impressive as we are ranked #131 out of 318 total companies in the software industry!
Our CEO, Anthony Bruno says, “To be ranked in the top third of America’s fastest growing private companies is quite an honor. I consider this a tribute to our entire team, who work tirelessly to simplify the online experience for thousands of sports organizations and millions of parents while at the same time keeping kids and information safe.”
With thousands of customers across all 50 states, SportsSignup provides online registration, volunteer background checking, and concussion management services to sports organizations from coast-to-coast, and have been doing so for almost ten years! Our company growth has so strong that earlier this year we opened a Mesa, Arizona office to provide additional customer service and sales beyond our corporate headquarters in Saratoga Springs, New York.
In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2012 Inc. 500|5000 companies remains an impressive 97 percent. SportsSignup contributes to the list of 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.
“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.
The complete 2012 Inc. 500/5000 appears in the September issue of Inc. (and online at http://www.inc.com/inc5000/list/2012). The 2012 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2008. They had to be U.S.‐based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2011. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2008 is $100,000; the minimum for 2011 is $2 million.
