GSATi, a global media and technology company, is proud to announce it was ranked No. 169 overall on the annual Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies by Inc. magazine. The list represents an important segment of the economy—America's entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Zipcar, Vizio, Oracle and others gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
GSATi, founded by Cindy Tysinger in 2008, experienced 2,367% growth from 2009 through 2012. Cindy attributes their growth to the company philosophy and her experienced team. “We believe that technology should be a competitive advantage in your business, and we have built a solid reputation as a leader in North America helping our clients achieve that. Our leadership team has worked together for a decade, and we work collaboratively with our clients for their success.”
GSATi helps clients with marketing and IT requirements by assessing their current systems, suggesting tailored solutions or building and implementing a custom system. Each approach is tailored to fit the business model and industry. “We pull from our experience across many industries to make sure each business solution we provide has the best chance for success,” added Cindy Tysinger. “We’ve taken our decades of direct selling experience and created a Suite of Web Tools for direct selling companies to enhance their distributor and customer experiences.” Direct sales clients can offer quality, custom online tools for distributors without the cost of additional IT staff. The tools work perfectly together and can plug into existing systems for integrating existing distributor data.
The 2013 Inc. 500|5000, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 20 to November 20 and on Inc.com), is the most competitive crop in the list's history. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved a staggering minimum of 918.59% in sales growth. The Inc. 500's aggregate revenue is $14.1 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1739 percent. The companies on this year's Inc. 500 employ more than 52,100 people and generated more than 44,912 jobs in the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 500|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/500.
"Not all the companies in the Inc. 500|5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy," says Inc. magazine editor Eric Schurenberg.
The 2013 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2009 to 2012. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2009. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2012. The minimum revenue required for 2009 is $100,000; the minimum for 2012 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons.
