Companies mentioned in this article: Terapeak

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Inc. Magazine today ranked Terapeak, the leader in ecommerce analytics, No. 4,441 on its 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The ranking is a testament to Terapeak’s rapid growth since opening its U.S. headquarters in 2012.

“Our Palo Alto headquarters has complemented our Victoria and Toronto offices by providing us with additional talent, innovation and opportunity,” said Kevin North, President & CEO of Terapeak. “Our success depends on providing global merchants with marketplace analytics that make them more competitive on eBay and Amazon. For Terapeak, growth is an indication that we are meeting merchants’ needs and helping to drive their success in ecommerce.”

The first authorized analytics provider of eBay market data, Terapeak has evolved with the rise of global online commerce. The company’s marketplace intelligence solutions for eBay and Amazon have become essential tools for online entrepreneurs, ecommerce merchants and Fortune 500 firms. Merchants use Terapeak to evaluate sourcing opportunities, price points, market trends, product behavior across regions and their competition. The latest feature from Terapeak now allows its customers to evaluate, score and optimize their ecommerce listings. This year, Terapeak received the SIIA Software CODiE Award for Best Business Intelligence/Analytics Solution. The company was also ranked No. 221 on the 2014 PROFIT 500 and number 43 in Deloitte’s 2013 Canadian Technology Fast 50 program.

The 2014 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years. 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.

"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. 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.
