SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/14 -- Ensighten, the leading global enterprise data and tag management provider and company behind the Agile Marketing Platform, today announced it ranked No. 172 on Inc. Magazine's 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, 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. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, LinkedIn, Zillow and other globally recognized brands gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
The 2014 Inc. 500|5000 is the most competitive crop in the list's history. To make the cut companies had to achieve a staggering 943% in sales growth in a three-year period, and the median growth was 1,828%.
Ensighten was recognized for its phenomenal sales growth of 2,416%. The company attributes this momentum to its enterprise-level tag management foundation, which enables digital marketers to collect, own and act on their online and offline data in real-time to increase marketing agility and personalize experiences for consumers. As part of its continued growth, Ensighten in January 2014 announced it raised $40M in Series B funding. In March, the company acquired its biggest global competitor, TagMan. In May, Ensighten expanded its offerings to Australia with a new office in Sydney.
"It is an honor to be recognized among such notable brands like GoPro and LiveRamp on this year's Inc. 5000 list," said Ensighten Founder and CEO Josh Manion. "We continue seeing tremendous growth at Ensighten as we redefine the marketing cloud for our innovative customers and partners. We are proud to provide an open platform that delivers significant value to our customers' customers through more personalized experiences across every digital touchpoint."
Ensighten's open platform has continued to see significant adoption, including a very strong Q2 2014 with 200% booking growth and 130% year-over-year growth in its customer base, which accounts for global commerce equivalent to the tenth largest world economy (over $1.9 trillion).
Eric Schurenberg, Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief, added, "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. 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 - 17, 2014 in Phoenix, Arizona. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show "The Profit" Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.
