Groupware Named One of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the Ninth Time with 2016 Inclusion in the Inc. 5000 List
August 17, 2016
Campbell, CA (August 17, 2016) – Groupware Technology, a leading Bay Area data center solutions provider, today announced that Inc. magazine ranked Groupware on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive list 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 Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
The 2016 list will be the Campbell, CA company’s ninth year on the Inc. 5000, since 2007 when it debuted on the list as the number one fastest growing IT services company. “We are honored to be included again this year among the fastest-growing companies in the U.S.,” said Mike Thompson, Groupware. “Inc. magazine recognition again this year attests to our ability to adapt to our customers’ needs and remain relevant in the highly competitive and rapidly changing technology landscape.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, generating 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. 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 www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
