Inc 5000 number 1620 badgeSioux Falls, SD, August 17, 2017 - Inc. Magazine has ranked MarketBeat No. 1,620 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the fastest-growing privately-held companies in the United States. MarketBeat was named as the 4th fastest-growing company in the state of South Dakota, based on its three-year revenue growth of 243%. The list is a testament to the work of the economy's unsung heroes - America's independent entrepreneurs. MarketBeat joins VRC Metal Systems, Weisser Distributing, Click Rain, and other powerful South Dakota brands featured on this year's list.

"It's a true honor to be featured among the Inc. 5000 for the second year in a row," says MarketBeat Founder and President Matthew Paulson. "At the beginning of the year it seemed that our numbers might plateau, but we worked really hard and were able to attract more than 40 million page views and generate more than $2.7 million in revenue. We have also added new team members and we are looking forward to finding more ways to serve retail investors and get them the information they need when they need it."

Based in Sioux Falls, SD, MarketBeat credits much of its success to the friendly business environment in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. "South Dakota has been a great place to grow a business, with it's low tax burden, skilled workforce, and encouraging community," Paulson says. The MarketBeat founder is passionate about reinvesting into that community by encouraging other entrepreneurs, connecting them with available resources, and fostering a startup culture in the Sioux Falls area.
