West Des Moines, Iowa, August 24, 2007 — GeoLearning, Inc., the leading provider of Managed Learning Services and hosted learning and performance platforms, announced today that it has been ranked on first-ever list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in America. GeoLearning was ranked #2,811 on the 2007 Inc. 5000 list with a sales growth rate of 120 percent over the past three years.
Complete information on this year´s Inc. 5,000, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The list features a profile for each company, almost all of them written as a result of Inc. interviews with management. In addition, the list is searchable according to numerous criteria, including industry, city, state, region, and year founded.
The Inc. 5,000 is an extension of Inc. magazine´s annual Inc. 500 list and catches many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as a host of smaller firms. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy. GeoLearning is also a three-time Inc. 500 winner (2004 through 2006).
"The Inc. 5,000 provides the most comprehensive look ever at the most important part of the economy–the entrepreneurial part," said Inc. 5,000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. "The expansion of the list has allowed us to tell the stories of larger companies, older companies, and a wealth of companies that are underreported in the business media.
"It was a great honor to make the Inc. 500 for three consecutive years and to again be recognized as part of the inaugural Inc. 5000," said Frank Russell, president and CEO of GeoLearning. "It is an achievement made possible by dedicated employees, world-class customers and a unique business model that has been proven very successful over time."
