GumGum has again been recognized on Inc. Magazine's annual list of America's fastest growing companies.
SANTA MONICA, Cali.––Inc. magazine today revealed that GumGum is on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. GumGum earned its ranking with a three-year-growth rate of 182.52 percent.
“It’s always rewarding to be honored for exceptional growth so to now have received this recognition again is particularly gratifying,” said GumGum CEO Phil Schraeder.

We’re looking forward to seeing even faster growth as we continue work on our leading suite of machine learning-based contextual intelligence solutions for marketers and rights holders."
