Where2GetIt (http://www.where2getit.com/), an industry-leading provider of location-based digital marketing solutions, is pleased to announce it has been named a winner for the RuleBreaker awards. The unconventional awards program, sponsored by Sage North America, Nextiva and InfusionSoft, celebrates entrepreneurs who flout convention, forge their own paths and break all the rules.
Where2GetIt has been selected as a Judge’s Choice for the “Technology Provider, Over $5M in Sales” category. Manish Patel, the company's founder and CEO, is being recognized for revolutionizing the industry by ignoring conventional wisdom and doing things his way.
“I was told that to raise money was the only way to survive this volatile game we call entrepreneurship,” said Manish Patel. “Instead, I focused on profit, growth and sustainability. Eighteen years later, we are one of the strongest players in this industry.”
Where2GetIt is also in contention for the RuleBreaker Awards grand-prize along with 18 other finalists. The grand-prize will be awarded to a company that has risen to meet all challenges and has shown persistence ultimately resulting in organizational success.
“We’re proud to honor entrepreneurs who have succeeded by doing it their way,” said Rieva Lesonsky, CEO of GrowBiz Media and a co-host of the RuleBreaker Awards.
“Choosing the finalists was a difficult decision,” said co-host Mike Michalowicz, author of The Pumpkin Plan. “It was inspiring to discover so many entrepreneurs revolutionizing their industries.”
