RAMP Named to the 2014 Inc. 5000 List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies

Impressive Three-Year Sales Growth Driven by Award-Winning "RAMP for SharePoint" Enterprise Video Solution

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 8, 2014) - RAMP, the leading provider of next-generation video and search experiences for media, marketing and enterprises, announced today it has been named to the prestigious Inc. 5000 list of America's fastest-growing private companies. RAMP is ranked #2991 nationally and #105 in Massachusetts. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy -- America's independent entrepreneurial ventures.

RAMP was named to the list based on a 3-year revenue growth rate of 120 percent. RAMP provides unique, cloud-based solutions for the explosive online video market across a variety of industries, including media and entertainment, financial services, retail, pharmaceutical and healthcare and energy. Industry leading companies using RAMP solutions include Citi, Entercom, Levi's, EyeforTravel, FOXNews, Golf Channel and Meredith Publishing.

"We are honored to be on the Inc. 5000 again this year and pleased to see RAMP recognized for its success in enterprises across a range of verticals," said Tom Wilde, CEO of RAMP. "Online video is transforming the media and enterprise landscapes and companies are seeking ways to make their video content more discoverable, engaging and actionable. RAMP customers can provide their viewers with a much better experience and simultaneously make their videos more valuable across the systems, platforms and devices that people are using everyday to manage and find content."

The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands from August 20 to November 30), is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516%. The Inc. 5000' s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years. 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/inc5000.

"What surprises me, even though I know it's coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn't change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship."

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 15 through 17, 2014 in Phoenix. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show "The Profit" Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.

Inc. 500|5000 Methodology
The 2014 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent -- not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies -- as of December 31, 2013. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2010 is $100,000; the minimum for 2013 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.
