Boston, Mass. (PRWEB) September 03, 2014
Buildium was named number 1,446 on the thirty-third annual Inc. 5000 list, a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy — America’s independent entrepreneurs.
“We’re honored to be on the Inc. 5000 list for the third year in a row,” said Michael Monteiro, co-founder and CEO of Buildium. “Since last year, we’ve focused on building our relationship with the Boston business community, providing opportunities for young entrepreneurs and developing valuable software for our customers. We’re thrilled to have made the list yet again; it shows that we’re still moving in the right direction.”
With more than 9,500 customers around the world and employees in three countries, Buildium has grown rapidly, necessitating a move to a larger office in Downtown Boston in 2013. Since last year, Buildium has grown its customer base by more than 1,400 customers and increased staffing by 23%.
In addition, the company has created a scholarship program called Build U. for students enrolled in Product Design, Interaction Design, Engineering or Computer Science programs at public or private universities. Through partnerships with the Startup Institute and Launch Academy, the company’s employees mentor and teach young professionals in the Greater Boston area. Buildium also provides free co-working space to budding entrepreneurs from area colleges. The company’s co-founders also lead “fireside chats” to inspire students to become leaders in the software industry.
