At memoryBlue, we aspire to work each day on closing the gap between our potential and our achievement.

memoryBlue today announced that Inc. Magazine ranked memoryBlue No. 1,892 on its 34th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. With a three-year sales growth of 209 percent, memoryBlue ranked No. 120 of companies headquartered in the state of Virginia.

memoryBlue provides top inside sales talent for high-tech clients who are looking to grow their businesses faster by surfacing more sales opportunities and scaling existing inside sales teams. The firm’s success can be attributed to a rapidly growing high-tech inside sales industry, a culture that inspires both personal and professional growth, and an aggressive growth strategy to establish a local presence in the top 20 high-tech markets in the United States.

“At memoryBlue, we aspire to work each day on closing the gap between our potential and our achievement,” said Chris Corcoran, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of memoryBlue. “With the announcement of our third year on the Inc. 5000 List coinciding with both the one year anniversary of our Austin, TX office and with the opening of our Silicon Valley, CA office, we’re thrilled to receive this honor as a tribute to not only the value our Employees deliver our Clients, but also the value the 125+ members of our Alumni Network create within the high-tech industry.”

This year’s Inc. 5000 compiles the most competitive list of companies in history. With an aggregate revenue of $205 billion, Inc. 5000 companies generated 647,000 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

"The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident."


The 2015 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2011 to 2014. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2011. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent— not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2014. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2011 is $100,000; the minimum for 2014 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons.
