NewsCred, the world’s leading content marketing platform, today announced it ranked 26 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. NewsCred’s revenue grew 3,570 percent between 2011 and 2014, and 40% of its customer base now includes Fortune 2000 companies.
NewsCred’s chief executive officer and co-founder, Shafqat Islam, credits NewsCred’s growth to its ability to provide the best solution for global enterprise brands such as Pepsi, Visa, and ConAgra to easily scale and share their stories with the world.
“Marketing is a value exchange; content marketing allows brands to share their amazing stories and actually add inspirational, entertaining, or educational value to people’s lives,” said Shafqat Islam, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, NewsCred. “But, marketers today are operating in an increasingly complex marketing ecosystem, and are tasked with managing content across global teams, geographies, brands and more than 40 marketing channels. In order for brands to succeed and provide a better user experience that gives consumers the content they crave and on the channel they prefer, brands need to centralize their content creation and channel distribution. At NewsCred, we’re devoted to helping brands by making marketing better.”
“Amid a fierce business climate, there seems to be no shortage of new and established companies that are unlocking a seemingly unlimited potential for growth and advancement through technology’s continued disruption and proliferation across industries,” said Sandra Shirai, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “It is inspiring to witness the innovative ways that companies are incorporating emerging technologies for business gains, be it cognitive computing, or the Internet of Things. We congratulate all those ranked on this year’s Fast 500 and look forward to seeing their continued growth into 2016.”
“Through the efforts and utilization of new and emerging technologies from these companies, we are witnessing greater business demands from across almost all industries,” added Jim Atwell, national managing partner of the emerging company practice, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “We look forward to the opportunity to serve these companies as they strive to grow to the next level – be it towards introducing new solutions or entering new markets – and with it make important and long lasting impressions on the technology market as a whole.”
Overall, 2015 Technology Fast 500™ companies achieved revenue growth ranging from 109 percent to 21,984 percent from 2011 to 2014, with an average growth of 850 percent.
