Magazine Ranks Agency as a Fastest Growing Company in America

Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) August 20, 2014

Groove, a Baltimore-based creative marketing, web design and development agency, was ranked for a second year on Inc. Magazines Inc. 5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economyAmericas independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Dominos Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.

The Groove team and the unique culture we have built is the heart of our success, said Ethan Giffin, Groove CEO. Being named to this elite list for a second year proves that we are on the right track.

Groove ranked #2928 on 2014 Inc. 5000, the most competitive crop in the lists history. This recognition comes on the heels of being named the first HubSpot Platinum partner in Baltimore (and only one of 16 globally) and being honored as a Baltimore Business Journal Best Places to Work finalist.

"What surprises me, even though I know its 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 doesnt change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.

The 2014 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent--not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies--as of December 31, 2013. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2010 is $100,000; the minimum for 2013 is $2 million.
