Online Backup Provider Ranks No. 1 in IT Services and Boston-based Businesses
NEW YORK, NY, Aug. 24, 2010 — /BackupReview.info/ –Â Inc. magazine today rankedÂ Carbonite No. 9 on its 29th annual Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Â The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economyâ€”America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, GoDaddy, Zipcar,Â Clif Bar, American Apparel, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500.
“Fast growth at any time is a big achievement; fast growth during the past few years is just short of miraculous,” saidÂ Inc. editor Jane Berentson. “The Inc. 500 consists of these just-short-of miraculous companies, the ones that through ingenuity and ambition have increased revenue, hired employees, and grown fast in difficult economic times.”
Along with an overall No. 9 ranking in the Inc. 500, Carbonite also secured a No. 1 ranking in the IT Services category and a No. 1 ranking amongÂ Boston-based businesses for the 2010 Inc. 500. The company launched its online backup service in 2006 and has raised more thanÂ $76 million in several rounds of venture financing.
“When my business partner,Â Jeff Flowers, and I decided to start an online backup company after his wife’s laptop was stolen, we never dreamt it would grow so rapidly,” saidÂ David Friend, CEO and co-founder of Carbonite. “We’re thankful for our team and all of our customers who believed in our simple and secure online backup service. Â It is an honor to be ranked No. 1 within the IT services category andÂ Boston-based businesses, and No. 9 amongst all privately-held American businesses.”
