Advantage Media Group Named One of the Fastest Growing Companies in America
Advantage Media Group has been named to the prestigious Inc. 500|5000 list of fastest-growing companies in America. Advantage Media Group ranked as No. 2405 overall, with three-year sales growth of 102%, and placed #30 for the Top Media Companies on this year’s list. Past Inc. 500|5000 alumni have included such companies as Zappos, HubSpot, Microsoft, Intuit and Oracle.
“When we launched Advantage, now seven years ago, our goal was to offer professionals a hybrid alternative to self-publishing and traditional publishing. With a dedicated team of publishing, technology, marketing and design professionals, we have been able to continue our growth, year after year, even in today’s tough economy,” says Adam Witty, CEO of Advantage Media Group. “This honor is a true testament to our efforts and ability to change the face of today’s publishing world.”
Advantage Media Group joins other Charleston-based companies BiblioLabs, BoomTown and Levelwing for this year’s list. “Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500|5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. magazine editor, Eric Schurenberg.
The 2012 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2008. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2011. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2008 is $100,000; the minimum for 2011 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue.
