Our CEO, Brian Cruver, said it best:

“AlertMedia helps companies save lives and minimize loss when disasters happen, from wildfires and floods to cyber and terrorist attacks. In a very short time, we have reinvented how emergency communication happens, and become the technology leader in our industry. Our growth is a reflection of the outstanding team we have built at AlertMedia—people with a passion for making a difference and the skills and experience to deliver amazing products and services to our customers.”

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief, James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”

Methodology

The 2019 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 and 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2018. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2015 is $100,000; the minimum for 2018 is $2 million. Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons.
