Educational technology company committed to transforming education was named one of the fastest-growing private companies for the fifth consecutive year

This week, Inc. 500 released its annual list of the nation’s fastest growing private companies, and Lightspeed Systems, a leader in educational technology, achieved a prestigious position. This is the fifth consecutive year Lightspeed Systems has been recognized on the Inc. 5,000 list, based on the company’s 130% three-year growth rate.

The annual Inc. 5,000 list is a comprehensive showing of American companies with high-level revenue growth. This list recognizes the entrepreneurial spirit of select business owners – the true job creators in our recovering national and world economy. This year, a strong emphasis was placed on companies focused on innovation, optimism, and an overall improvement of the nation’s economic outlook.

Lightspeed Systems’ most recent achievement is the result of hard work and an all-encompassing passion for education. The company is focused on providing award-winning solutions that not only secure schools' networks, but also provide education-focused resources to make learning collaborative and engaging. Lightspeed Systems is dedicated to partnering with schools to help them reach their educational technology goals.

“We are a company 100% committed to the future of education,” explains CEO Joel Heinrichs. “Improving and impacting the lives of IT staff, administration, teachers, and most importantly, students, though the use of our solutions and innovative products is our number one priority.”

Education is changing. And over the past year, Lightspeed Systems has been on the cutting-edge of those changes. With the release of the latest version of My Big Campus, the company has solidified its position as a leader in providing classrooms with collaborative learning solutions. My Big Campus allows students and teachers to engage one another, create a dynamic learning experience, and leave a true digital footprint–all while being protected and monitored under the award-winning Web Filter.

Lightspeed Systems also recognizes the financial burdens faced by many school districts across the nation. The company is committed to providing their innovative network solutions in a cost-effective bundle or as stand-alone products to meet individual district needs. The product suite includes the Web Filter, Mobile Filter, Spam Filter, Advanced Network Reporting, and Power Management, in addition to My Big Campus, Campus Mail, and Hosted District Website.
