IQM (No. 44) Appears on the Inc. 5000 Ranking for the First Time Ever in its History

IQM, a leading U.S. digital advertising platform and data solutions provider whose sole focus is politics, announced its inclusion on the 2019 Inc. 5000 ranking of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies. IQM is ranked 44th. The Inc. 5000 list is the most prestigious ranking of U.S. private companies and a unique look at the most successful independent small businesses within the American economy. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

IQM specializes in ‘voter matching’ for politicians and organizations. IQM is the only data management platform whose sole focus is politics. The company’s proprietary algorithms activate voter-based data, automate ad execution, and optimize advertising interactions across the digital landscape. Its technologies have helped thousands of campaigns more precisely target audiences and get a clearer picture of how voters are reacting to media and ads viewed across devices.

Kris Qiu, Co-Founder of IQM said, “The need for more modern solutions for reaching voters has been staring political campaigns in the face for decades. In a polarized environment, campaigns that more effectively deliver digital content to influenceable voters and motivate them to act is a key to winning on Election Day. We take our role in increasing civic engagement extremely seriously. The Inc. Magazine recognition is a testament to our team's hard work and innovation, as well as the growth strategies we executed in the past five years.”

“The IQM platform has succeeded in delivering greater transparency within the digital advertising ecosystem. It’s the foundation of all our client relationships and the driving force behind our increased market share,” said IQM Co-Founder Bhargav Patel. He added, “we’re honored to be amongst such a prestigious group of business leaders and solutions providers. Thank you again.”

The companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 show staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” said Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
