Underground Elephant, a performance-marketing technology company has been ranked Inc. Magazine’s 500|5000 list of America’s fastest growing private companies.

Underground Elephant, headquartered in San Diego, CA, with a satellite office in San Francisco, CA, delivers innovative, SaaS marketing performance platforms and the highest quality customer calls, clicks and inquiries in the industry. Underground Elephant joins companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit and Oracle and many other well-known brands as members of the Inc. 500|5000.

Underground Elephant is ranked 695 nationally and number 13 in San Diego with an impressive three-year growth of 659%. Underground Elephant also has the distinction of making Inc.’s top 100 Advertising and Marketing company list.

“We have achieved tremendous growth through the successful launch of our enhanced click-bidding platform, which has knocked the door open to the highly guarded insurance industry. Underground Elephant's ability to serve leading enterprise companies with the best in class SaaS technology, has led to increased market share, and high customer retention,” said Jason Kulpa, Underground Elephant CEO.

“The Inc. 5000 was harder to get into this year than ever in its history,” Eric Schurenberg Editor in Chief of Inc. Magazine wrote in his congratulatory letter announcing Underground Elephant’s inclusion. “The median company on the list increased sales more than 140 percent since the start of 2010, while the average honoree grew a mind-boggling 468 percent.”

Methodology
The 2013 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2009 to 2012. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2009. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2012. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2009 is $100,000; the minimum for 2012 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue.
