ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 27, 2012) - Last week Inc. Magazine unveiled its highly anticipated 500 | 5000 List, ranking first-time applicant ProductionHUB #779 out of 5,000 private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy -- America's independent entrepreneurs. Unified Payments tops this year's list, joined by iconic brands like Facebook, Publix Supermarkets, Yelp and Chobani.
ProductionHUB is an online marketplace for broadcast TV, motion picture, pro video, live event, corporate and digital media production. The website connects thousands of businesses with professional video services on a monthly basis -- from freelancers and crew to high-end studios.
In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2012 Inc. 500 | 5000 companies remains an impressive 97 percent. The companies on this year's list created over 400,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $299 billion.
"We are honored to be included in this year's Inc. 5000 list," says John Pokorny, Founder & President of ProductionHUB. "We are an established production resource with a start-up mentality -- a rare combination. Our growth can be attributed to listening and responding to user feedback, growing strategic partnerships and expanding job opportunities across the country. We are in an ideal position to keep supporting the film & video industry, by connecting businesses to those services."
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/5000.
"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500 | 5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is," says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
The 2012 Inc. 500 | 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2008. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent -- not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies -- as of December 31, 2011. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2008 is $100,000; the minimum for 2011 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.'s September issue.
