The Mountain West Capital Network Recognizes School Improvement Network, the Creators of PD 360, as One of the Top Emerging Enterprises in Utah

The greatest beneficiaries of this growth are hundreds of thousands of administrators, teachers, and students who are closing the achievement gap in their schools.

On October 6, the Mountain West Capital Network named School Improvement Network one of the 100 fastest growing companies in Utah, awarding it a spot on the coveted “Utah 100” list. The “Utah 100” program recognizes companies whose skyrocketing revenue growth places them among the elite innovators in the state.

School Improvement Network, the leader in professional development for educators, debuted on the Utah 100 three years ago, and has risen on the list ever since. The average growth rate for companies ranked in the Utah 100 is nearly 1,000 percent. That number is staggering, especially in the current economy. School Improvement Network is honored to be ranked among such a select group of entrepreneurs. Even more exciting is what such unprecedented growth means for the school districts that make up School Improvement Network’s client base.

“We’re proud that the Mountain West Capital Group has highlighted the strides our company made in 2011, and we thank them for their recognition.” says Curtis Linton, Vice President of the School Improvement Network. “The greatest beneficiaries of this growth are hundreds of thousands of administrators, teachers, and students who are closing the achievement gap in their schools. Our clients are experiencing elevated test scores, teacher improvement, better classroom chemistry, and more success in and out of school as a result of our product. We see growth as a stamp of approval from our customers, and as further confirmation that we are producing the best professional learning videos available to educators. We attribute all of our growth to the continuing quality of our product.”
