Cardlytics, a purchase-based data intelligence platform that makes all advertising better, today announced that it has been named to the 2015 Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies from Inc. magazine. Cardlytics was recognized as one of the top 100 companies, ranked No. 88 overall, and No. 12 in the Advertising & Marketing category.
The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Cardlytics shares this elite recognition with other industry leaders that gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000, including Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn and Zillow.
“We are proud to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 as one of the top 100 companies, and the fastest-growing $50m+ advertising and marketing company in Georgia,” said Scott Grimes, CEO of Cardlytics. “This growth is a testament to our team, and the value of using purchase data to make smarter business decisions.”
The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 18 to September 22), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. Complete results can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”
