August 12, 2015
Sales Growth Secures Position on Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA (PRWEB) AUGUST 12, 2015 — Ampush, a full-service provider of mobile-first, cross-device, in-feed advertising solutions on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest, announced today it has been named one of the fastest-growing companies in America by Inc. magazine. The Inc. 500 annually profiles companies that are redefining American business and disrupting major industries. Ampush was ranked #61 in the Inc. 500, and #4 in the technology software category, with 4399% revenue growth from 2011 to 2014, and a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 256%.
With its inclusion in the Inc. 500, Ampush joins the ranks of distinguished companies such as Microsoft (1985, #163), Zappos (2007, #474), and Pandora (2011, #391). The company’s growth is a result of Ampush’s focus on cross-platform mobile-advertising on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest. It’s also consistent with results the company released in its Q2 2015 benchmark report, which details pricing and spending trends based on mobile advertising campaigns Ampush deployed for some of the nation’s top companies. In Q2, Ampush saw 152% year-over-year growth in mobile advertising spend, and 28% growth quarter-over-quarter. The results place Ampush in a leading position within the mobile advertising landscape, which eMarketer analysts expect to top $100 billion in spend by 2016, accounting for more than 50% of all digital ad expenditure for the first time.
“We are honored to be recognized as the 61st fastest-growing company in the nation,” said Jesse Pujji, CEO and Co-founder of Ampush. “Our growth is a direct function of our customers’ success, and we would not have achieved this distinction without them and a team of dedicated Ampushers who work for our customers’ success every day.”
Inc. 500 bases its ranking on the percentage growth of revenue over a 3-year period. The organization verifies company information and revenue by reviewing tax forms and financial statements from certified public accountants.
Ampush leverages its leading marketing software, AMP, and a managed approach to drive profitable advertising results on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
