Freestar, the leading monetization partner for content publishers, e-commerce sites, and app developers, announced today that it is No. 36 on the annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. Its three-year revenue growth rate of 7,239% allowed the boot-strapped company to be one of only three companies in the last decade to stay in the top 100 the year after a No. 1 ranking. Freestar is the fastest growing company in the State of Arizona and the third fastest growing Advertising and Marketing company in the country on the 2020 Inc. 5000 list.
“We are extremely proud that we’ve maintained our momentum in 2020 since being honored with the coveted No. 1 position in 2019. We have no plans of slowing down and are more committed than ever to deliver tailored solutions, innovative products and best-in-class service to our partners,” said Kurt Donnell, President and CEO of Freestar.
Freestar attributes the continued success to its incredible team of industry experts, innovative technology and world-class customer service. During a challenging time when many other businesses have been downsizing, the company is fortunate to have continued its growth, hiring 20 new employees and adding over 100 new partners so far in 2020. It also recently completed the acquisition of additional in-app monetization technology to bolster its existing solutions and continues to see great success helping e-commerce sites grow revenue by thoughtfully incorporating advertising. The company is also growing its suite of products that help advertisers efficiently deliver their message to Freestar’s ever-expanding audience that is now over 130M unique visitors and 50% of all U.S. internet users each month.
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
