Groove Ranked as One of California’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies by the 2021 Inc. 5000 Regionals List
Inc. Magazine just published its Inc. 5000 Regionals list of the fastest-growing private companies in California, and Groove is proud to have made the list! In its second year, this regional version of the infamous Inc. 5000 list offers a unique look at the most successful companies within the California economy.
Our 82nd ranking on this prestigious list is a testament to the accelerating adoption of sales engagement platforms that fueled our record growth and strengthened our market position as a category leader.
As part of its October 2018 Sales Engagement Market Guide, TOPO Research (now Gartner) reported that 90% of sales leaders planned “to invest in technologies and methodologies to help their sellers engage more effectively with prospects and customers.” TOPO went on to project that the industry would become a multi-billion market, driven primarily by increased adoption by entire sales organizations.
The accelerated growth of the sales engagement category over the past three years has fueled Groove’s record revenue and helped strengthen its position as the number one platform for enterprises using Salesforce. As the only platform that is easily customizable to meet the unique needs of different revenue teams, Groove has also benefited from increased interest in extending the benefits of automation, collaboration, and insights to account executives, full-cycle sellers, and other customer-facing teams.
“It’s a tremendous honor to be recognized for Groove’s record growth, and I couldn’t be more proud of the incredible team that is making our success possible,” said Chris Rothstein. “The sales engagement platform category has really taken off in the past couple of years, and it’s extremely rewarding to be on the frontlines helping innovative sales teams embrace automation and spend more time selling.”
The 2021 Inc. 5000 Regionals list highlights the impressive growth rates of companies across all industries in California. Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 535 percent and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 40,000 people and added nearly $7 billion to the California economy. Companies based in major metro areas—Los Angeles, the Bay Area, and San Diego—brought in the highest revenue overall.
“This list proves the power of companies in California no matter the industry,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The impressive revenues and growth rates prove the insight and diligence of CEOs and that these businesses are here to stay.”
