The list represents a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.

Kitani continued, “Our inclusion in the Inc. 5000, for the second year, highlights our success as we continue to grow across every segment, enabling more companies to improve employee productivity, satisfaction and retention through an effective and engaging communications strategy.”

The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at and with the top 500 companies, including GuideSpark, featured in the September issue of 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.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 21 through 23, 2015 in Orlando.
