The mobile app developer ranks 1614 overall on the 2012 Inc.’s 500|5000 list
FRANKLIN, Tenn. Aug. 22, 2012 – Metova, Inc. has made the 2012 Inc. 500|5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This is the second year in a row the mobile app developer has cracked into the rankings. Listed 1614 overall, Metova cited a three-year growth rate of 182 percent.
The Franklin, Tenn. based company, ranked 17th out of the 49 Middle Tennessee area companies that made the list. The company also ranked 125th nationally within the software industry.
“Last year was the first time that we were eligible for the list, so making it these last two years — ever since we’ve been able to — says something really special about our company, staff and the work that we produce for our clients,” said Kevin Ross, president and founder of Metova. “We’re excited to continue to push the envelope in mobile and tablet app development, changing and growing as our industry continues to move forward.”
Metova, which now employs 25, has grown rapidly from its startup roots in 2006 as an early player in the mobile industry. The company develops custom mobile applications for smartphone and tablet platforms, including Android, iOS, BlackBerry and Windows Phone. Its base of full-time employees has more than doubled over the last three years. In 2011, Metova was one of only five companies in Tennessee to be listed on Inc.’s 500 list, ranking 492nd.
According to the magazine, companies are chosen for the list by comparing revenue growth from 2008 to 2011. Companies must be U.S.-based, privately held, independent, for-profit and not a subsidiary or division of another company. Revenues in 2008 must have been at least $100,000 and at least $2 million for 2011. The 31st Annual Inc. 500|5000 Conference and Awards Ceremony will be held October 3-5, 2012 in Phoenix.
Previous Inc. lists have included such tech powerhouses as Microsoft, Vizio, Intuit and Oracle. The full 2012 list can be accessed at www.inc.com/inc5000.
