Surefire Local, the industry’s leading provider of an all-in-one local marketing platform designed to help small and medium-sized businesses attract lifetime customers, grow revenue and drive profitability, announced today it was selected as an honoree on the 2019 “Inc. 5000” list. Surefire Local ranks number 2,570 among the nation’s fastest-growing private companies with rapid three-year revenue growth of 153 percent. Since 1982, the “Inc. 5000” list has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success, and the 2019 list as a whole shows staggering U.S. growth compared with prior lists.
“This award further underscores the impact Surefire Local’s advanced technology has on the SMB and enterprise markets as well as the reliance and value customers receive from leveraging our local marketing platform and services,” said Chris Marentis, founder, and CEO of Surefire Local. “We are thrilled to be recognized on Inc. 5000’s highly exclusive list for a sixth consecutive year.”
Founded in 2010, Surefire Local has been a repeat honoree on the accredited list for six consecutive years, a distinction only three percent of companies on the list can boast. On a mission to help businesses of all sizes generate qualified leads, raise brand awareness, optimize efficiency and drive savings, Surefire Local had grown from an information services company into a leading SaaS technology company with its flagship product, Surefire Local Marketing Cloud. Today, the company’s technology is deployed at more than 2,400 sites in North America, with hundreds of integrated partners and more than 150 employees globally.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course to follow or investment to take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
