Mobile Application Developer, Metova Cracks into Inc.’s Top 500

Mobile app developer lands 492nd on the 2011 Inc. magazine 500|5000 List

FRANKLIN, Tenn. Aug. 23, 2011 – Metova, a mobile application developer, has been named to Inc. magazine’s 500|5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. Ranked 492nd overall, the company cited a three-year growth rate of 689 percent.

The Franklin, Tennessee based company, ranked fifth out of the 53 Nashville metro area companies that made the list. The company also ranked 47th nationally within the software industry.

“We’re elated to be recognized as a member of this exceptional community of businesses,” said Kevin Ross, president and founder. “It’s been a thrilling couple of years for the mobile application business and we intend to stay on the forefront of this fast-moving industry.”

Founded in 2006, this is the first year that Metova qualified for the Inc. list. The company develops mobile applications for smartphones and tablet platforms, including Android, iPhone/iPad/iOS, BlackBerry and Windows Phone 7. Its customers range from enterprising entrepreneurs to international heavyweights like eHarmony, AP, VMWare, Dropbox and Yelp.

“In the past two years, we have more than doubled our staff. It is humbling to think how our bootstrapped company has grown from nothing to 23 employees in just five years,” Ross said. “We’re excited and poised to continue this tremendous growth in the future.”

According to the magazine, companies are chosen for the list by comparing revenue growth from 2007 to 2010. Companies must be U.S.-based, privately held, independent, for-profit and not a subsidiary or division of another company. Revenues in 2007 must have been at least $100,000 and at least $2 million for 2010.
