Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 21, 2014
SoundConnect, a unified communication and collaboration company, has been recognized as one of the nation’s Fastest Growing Private Companies by Inc. 500 | 5000 magazine for the 2nd consecutive year. Inc. magazine today ranked SoundConnect NO. 1195 on its 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
We are honored to be recognized as one of the nation’s fastest growing companies for the 2nd consecutive year,” CEO and Founder Shaun Chambers says. “Our continued growth is a testament to our top-notch team, their commitment to the customers we serve, and their continued devotion to the role we play in improving business communications. With the expansion of our service offering to include Microsoft hosted solutions and data services, we are poised for another tremendous year of growth and hopefully a 3rd consecutive year on the Inc. 500|5000.”
The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516%. The Inc. 5000’ s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
"What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
