NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine today listed TideSmart Global LLC on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment — its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino's Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000. Now in its 13th year, TideSmart ranked #2,971 nationally and 6th in Maine with a three-year growth rate of 115%.
"What I am most proud of is that TideSmart is not a new company exhibiting rapid growth in its first, second or third year, but rather the TideSmart family of companies continues to grow and expand after more than a decade," said TideSmart President and CEO Steve Woods. "Our staff works tirelessly and with industry-leading creativity for dozens of clients around the globe, and I'm proud to see their work recognized publicly."
TideSmart Global consists of a number of industry-leading experiential agencies: EMG3, Promerica Health, Sumerian Sports, Viridescence, and Ledgepoint Digital. TideSmart operates from a unique 6-acre, eco-friendly campus in Falmouth, Maine. Clients include such notable companies as Ford, McKesson, Delta, Lowe's, Sylvania, and international nonprofit the Marine Stewardship Council.
The 2016 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 three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
"The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails."
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held October 18-20, in San Antonio, TX. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller, Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.
"We are truly honored to be recognized among such esteemed and innovative companies," Woods said.
