Since its founding in 1979, the magazine Inc. has chronicled all the major developments in American entrepreneurship. It has often been ahead of the curve; in 1981, it was the first magazine to feature Steve Jobs on the cover, claiming that he “changed business forever” (that definitely checks out). As app developers probably already know, Inc. publishes a list of the fastest growing companies in the United States every year. The prestigious Inc. 5000ranks privately held and independent American companies based on their percentage revenue growth over a three-year period. To many of the nation’s top entrepreneurs, inclusion on the list is a milestone, a sign that they have made it. It is the kind of recognition that can push a thriving business even further ahead.
This year, Dogtown Media is honored to be on the Inc. 5000. Ranked at #271, we’re actually on the more exclusive Inc. 500. It feels great to see our hard work pay off with inclusion on a list that in the past has included such tech giants as Microsoft and Facebook. Our growth has been fueled by our passion and dedication to the art of app development. With a portfolio that includes a wide array of projects developed for small business, midmarket, and enterprise clients, we believe that no app is too big or too small. No matter what the size of the project, we bring our team’s full range of expertise to the table as the app moves through the development process, from concept, UX/UI design, and coding to monetization, marketing, and distribution. Our reputation continues to flourish because we show up for our clients, giving each project the attention and finesse it deserves.
2017 has been a big year for us so far. We raised money (and threw some great parties) for community art and the fight against blood cancer. We lobbied the nation’s lawmakers for tech-friendly policies, meeting with movers and shakers in D.C. during this year’s AppCon. We were ranked one of the top ten app developers in Los Angeles by Clutch. We saw one of our apps, Fayr, featured on Planet of the Apps, where it was backed by Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow. And now we’re expanding to another continent (more on that later). But making the Inc. 5000 feels especially validating. It is a marker of how far we have come — and believe us, this is only the beginning.Tags: 2017, app concept, app developers, app development, app project, app UX, AppCon2017, apps, awards, business, business growth, distribution, dogtown media, dogtown media app, dogtown media mobile app development, entrepreneurs, Entrepreneurship, Fayr, fundraising, growth, Inc. 5000, Inc.
