We are greatly pleased and honored to be among the brightest, most innovative companies in the country, said Siamak Taghaddos, GotVMail Co-founder, President and CEO.
Needham, MA (PRWEB) August 23, 2007
GotVMail® Communications (http://www.gotvmail.com), the entrepreneur's phone system™, has been named to Inc. magazine's 26th annual ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.
GotVMail, which secured number 66 on the 2007 Inc. 500 list that appears in the publication's September issue, achieved four-year sales growth from 2003 to 2006 of nearly 2000%. GotVMail's virtual phone system works just like a large company phone system, but is designed specifically for entrepreneurs. Customizable for 1 or more employees, GotVMail allows small businesses to stay connected and sound more professional. GotVMail was among 22 Boston area companies to make the list; a total of 24 Massachusetts companies made the 2007 Inc. 500 (placing sixth overall).
GotVMail's co-founders, Iranian born Siamak Taghaddos and Manhattan native David Hauser, are among the youngest entrepreneurs ever to make the Inc. 500. Both serial entrepreneurs are just 25-years-of age. In addition, GotVMail's #66 Inc. 500 ranking is one of the highest company debuts in the history of the storied list which was first published in 1982 and which has included such household name companies as Microsoft, Oracle, Intuit, and E*Trade.
"We are greatly pleased and honored to be among the brightest, most innovative companies in the country, said Siamak Taghaddos, GotVMail Co-founder, President and CEO. "GotVMail sprang from the desire of David Hauser and me to find a radically different kind of phone system that replicated the functionality and professionalism of a large company phone system affordably. We couldn't find a solution that addressed the needs of today's on-the-go entrepreneurs, so we started our company to provide such a service. The Inc. 500 designation is a reflection of the energy and enthusiasm of GotVMail's own entrepreneurial team and our desire to bring 'the GotVMail difference' to our small business customers everyday."
With GotVMail, any small business can sound more professional and streamline its communications by creating a virtual office that connects callers to employees wherever they are, on any type of home, office, or mobile phone. GotVMail small business customers never need to purchase or maintain expensive telephone equipment and monthly GotVMail service plans start at just $9.95 a month.
"If you want to find out which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500," said Inc. Editor Jane Berentson. "These are the most innovative, dynamic, fast-growth companies in the nation, the ones coming up with solutions to some of our most intractable ills, creating systems that let us conduct business faster and easier, and manufacturing products we soon discover we can't live without. The Inc. 500 list is Inc. magazine's tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition."
The Inc. 500 ranks privately held companies according to sales growth over the past four years. The 2007 Inc. 500 list measures revenue growth from 2004 through 2006. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based, independent and privately held - not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies - as of December 31, 2006, and have at least $200,000 in revenue in 2003, and $2 million in revenue in 2006.
Inc. 500 companies honored this year were engines of job growth, having created more than 64,000 jobs since the companies were founded. Historically, the Inc. 500 has been a prescient indicator of the companies and industries that are driving the economy forward.
