LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Inc. magazine today ranked GoGuardian the fastest-growing education company on its annual Inc. 500 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsize businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and other household names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 500.
“We believe GoGuardian is the fastest-growing education company of all time,” said GoGuardian CEO Advait Shinde. “Our mission to unlock student potential by placing student success and well-being at center of our technology drives GoGuardian’s unprecedented growth in the education software sector.”
“This award from Inc. 500 is the latest reflection of the ways our innovative products are revolutionizing the K-12 landscape. Hundreds of thousands of educators worldwide leverage our proprietary machine learning technology to help their 5 million students tap the educational power of the internet in safe and inspiring ways,” Shinde added.
The 2018 Inc. 500, unveiled online at Inc.com and the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive group in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved three-year growth of 481%, roughly 10% of the growth GoGuardian achieved. Complete results of the Inc. 500, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found here.
"The Inc. 500 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 500 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
Founded in 2014, GoGuardian first became eligible for the Inc. 500 awards this year. Demonstrating 3 years of revenue growth are required for eligibility. GoGuardian’s year-over-year growth would have qualified for the Inc. 500 lists in education, software, and overall companies since its inception.
