CLEVELAND, October 5, 2016 — For the third year in a row, Futuri Media, the foremost innovator in technology for broadcast media, has been named to the Inc. 5000 list as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The company ranked among the upper half of the list for the third straight year with a 156% three-year growth rate.
The last twelve months of Futuri Media’s growth have been propelled by innovation across a number of platforms, the largest contributors being Futuri’s TopicPulse social media system and TopLine sales services. Futuri was the only software company in Ohio to have made the list three times and was distinguished as among the nation’s top 400 firms among all business categories to reach the list three times or more.
Futuri was the second largest in revenue among all Ohio software companies. In percentage increase of revenue growth, Futuri ranked second among all Cleveland software companies, up from No. 3 in 2015 and No. 4 among all Ohio software companies for the second straight year.
Futuri CEO Daniel Anstandig notes, “We are passionate about shaping the future of media with our partners. With an emphasis on innovation behind everything we create, our team, technology, and partnerships have developed, scaled, and soared to new heights in the past year. Our goal is always about leveraging social and mobile technology for broadcasters to engage their audiences and drive their ad revenue.”
