The 2015 rankings include the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved three-year growth of 490%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years.

Signal was founded five years ago to offer one platform for marketers to collect, connect and activate customer data to execute real-time cross-channel marketing campaigns. This award highlights the company’s strong momentum, which includes triple-digit revenue growth every year since inception, more than 15,000 clients across the U.S., APAC, EMEA, and South America, and other high-profile awards including the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award®.

“Signal is incredibly proud to be one of the fastest-growing companies in the country,” said Mike Sands, CEO, Signal. “Our company’s fast growth affirms that brands and publishers need better solutions for engaging today’s always-on consumers in real time at scale, and underscores our success in helping marketers provide more relevant and personalized experiences.”
