With a three-year sales growth of 3,596 percent, the company is also the 10th highest ranked software company on this year’s list. Redbooth, the all-in-one workstream collaboration and communications platform that makes teams more productive and accountable, was founded in 2008 (formerly Teambox), has more than 900,000 registered users at more than 6,000 organizations, and has raised more than $17 million in venture funding.
“As our customers know, Redbooth is so much more than just ‘chat for business,’” said Redbooth CEO, Dan Schoenbaum. “Our platform actually empowers teams to work smarter with a full set of unified communications and collaboration capabilities, all within a highly intuitive digital workspace. Making the Inc. 5000 is further proof of Redbooth’s commitment to fundamentally changing the way we get work done for the better.”

(available on newsstands August 18 to September 22) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years.

“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “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.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 21 through 23, 2015 in Orlando.
