LAS VEGAS, Aug. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine ranked Panthera Interactive No. 317 on its 29th annual Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. In addition, Panthera Interactive ranked No. 1 in the state of Nevada. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, GoDaddy, Zipcar, Clif Bar, American Apparel, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500.
"Fast growth at any time is a big achievement; fast growth during the past few years is just short of miraculous," said Inc. editor Jane Berentson. "The Inc. 500 consists of these just-short-of miraculous companies, the ones that through ingenuity and ambition have increased revenue, hired employees, and grown fast in difficult economic times."
Panthera Interactive attributes its rapid growth to its top-level technology, commitment to high-level service for its advertiser and publisher clients, and a team known for their expertise within the online marketing and market research industries.
"To be included in the company of such marquee names is quite the honor," said Matthew Sandin, CEO and Founder of Panthera Interactive. "This is a testament of the hard work and dedication of the entire team as well as the vision that has been in place since the company started."
