)-- eBridge, an Encino-based Internet company and marketing firm providing online marketing solutions for more than 40,000 small businesses, was recognized by Inc 5000 in 2009 as one of the top 5,000 fastest growing small companies today, ranking 1,063th on the list of 5,000 top privately-owned businesses for 2009. eBridge joins such prestigious companies as consumer electronics maker Vizio, Internet giant GoDaddy, rental car service Zipcar, and beverage maker Honest Tea among the prominent brands featured on this year's list.
“Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate,” said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. “That’s why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year.”
eBridge now boasts its second year on the Inc 5000 list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. California entrepreneurs top the Inc 5000 list with 612 companies included in the rankings, and eBridge was pleased to appear at number 72 within those California based rankings. Of the businesses highlighted in the Advertising and Marketing category, eBridge ranks an impressive 95 out of 391, putting them in the top 1/4 of all private Advertising and Marketing companies today.
eBridge has seen close to a 300% growth in revenue since 2005, surpassing the Inc 5000 industry median of 126% by more than twice the average. eBridge CEO Mark Cave credits his company’s success to the hands on approach and one-on-one support his company offers small business owners nationwide. "It's truly an honor to be named as one of Inc 5000’s top private businesses again in 2009 - it's a very impressive group of companies, and one with which we're enormously proud to be included," said Cave. "The honor belongs entirely to our hard working, innovative team at eBridge, and our outstanding Board and Advisory Board members. Our tradition of year-on-year growth rates of over 40% is a testament to their tremendous efforts - and we're looking forward to continuing this great tradition in 2009."
