HARRISBURG, PA— September 9, 2014 – Inc. Magazine today placed Red Privet, a Pennsylvania-based customer research, digital design, and experience strategy firm with offices in Harrisburg and Philadelphia, on its 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000 list, an exclusive ranking 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. Red Privet ranks number 1461 on the 2014 Inc. 5000, with three-year sales growth of 293%.
Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
“Making the Inc. Magazine list is an incredible honor,” said Matt Hummel, Red Privet president and founder. “This recognition speaks to the amazing work of our staff in helping clients achieve meaningful engagement with their customers.”
The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516%. The Inc. 5000’ s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years.
“What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 15 through 17, 2014 in Phoenix.
