Today, we are proud to share that both Deloitte and the Chicago Tribune have recognized Sprout Social. For 2015, Sprout joins Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 at No. 21 out of 500 companies in North America. This annual list highlights the fastest-growing public and private companies in technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy technology.
Honorees are selected based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2011 to 2014. During this period, Sprout’s revenue grew 3,965.6%, while average growth for the 500 companies on the list was 850%. This announcement follows summer 2015 recognition of Sprout as No. 78 on the 2015 Inc. 500 list, which highlights the fastest-growing private companies in the US.
Sprout Social joins Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 at No. 21 with 3,965.6% revenue growth over the past three years.
“The social space evolves rapidly, and acknowledgements from the industry and our community only help build momentum as we continue to grow,” said Justyn Howard, Sprout’s Cofounder and CEO. “We are proud of our commitment to creating superior software and remain focused on providing an incomparable experience for our customers.”
In addition to being recognized for rapid business growth, Sprout was named one of the Chicago Tribune’s 2015 Top Workplaces. This honor is based on the results of an employee feedback survey measuring several aspects of workplace culture.
“Our incredible team enables us to build an incredible product,” said Jim Conti, Sprout’s Director of Talent. “Providing an exceptional environment is of utmost importance, and we’re honored to be recognized for our efforts to cultivate a sustainable, meaningful workplace for all of our team members.”
These two new accolades—one for company growth, one for employee satisfaction—come on the heels of a busy year for all of us at Sprout: We integrated with Instagram, added countless product features and enhancements, launched an entirely new social advocacy product (Bambu by Sprout Social), surpassed 16,000 customers and grew our team by 32%.
This year isn’t over yet. Stay tuned for additional news and product updates from Team Sprout!
