AUSTIN, Texas (Aug. 20, 2015) – FloSports was named to the 34th annual Inc. 5000 ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies released on August 12. The Austin-based sports media company placed among the Top 20 companies nationwide within the “media” category. The Inc. 5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
“We are thrilled to receive this national recognition from Inc. Magazine,” FloSports co-founder and CEO Martin Floreani said. “Like the athletes we cover, we are aggressive in our approach to providing sports fans with the content they crave in the sports they are most passionate about, whether through live streaming, owned and operated events or original content.”
The Inc. 5000 list highlights the nation’s most successful private companies and has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success.
“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership,” Inc. Magazine President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg said. “In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top. You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”
