ATLANTA, GA – Aug. 17, 2016 – Cardlytics, a purchase intelligence platform that makes all marketing more relevant and measurable, today announced that it has been named to the 2016 Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies from Inc. magazine. Cardlytics ranked No. 366 overall and No. 4 in advertising & marketing companies with revenues of more than $50M.
“We are proud to be named to the Inc. 5000 for the second year in a row with a three-year growth rate of more than 1000 percent,” said Scott Grimes, CEO of Cardlytics. “This ranking recognizes the continuous contributions of our team and the value of using our purchase intelligence to make all marketing more relevant and measurable.”
The Inc. 5000 represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent entrepreneur-led businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com, and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. Complete results of the Inc. 5000 can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-in-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder of a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
