I’m excited to announce that Signal has made the Inc 500|5000 list of fastest growing companies in the US, ranking #108 in our first year on the list.

I’ve been a cover-to-cover reader of Inc. magazine for over 15 years. I remember poring through the Inc. 500 list in college, admiring the companies listed for having created something substantial enough to be recognized as one of the fasted growing companies in the US.

So when we learned that we’d made the Inc. 500 list in early August, I was ecstatic.

I’ve never opened a package with more anticipation than the one that arrived at our office last Wednesday from Inc. Magazine. In true geek fashion, I’ve posted some photos of the unboxing below.

The mystery binder…what a fantastic feeling reading the words “Congratulations! You Made It”:

So with that, congratulations to the Signal team for this great accomplishment, and a huge thank you to all of the Signal customers for supporting us throughout the last five years. We’ll be sending out some special swag as we near our fifth birthday on September 21st to thank you all! Don’t be surprised if this guy shows up at your door.

…and that’s not all folks. This Inc 500 news comes right before we’re about to announce the most exciting news for our company to date. More on that later this week.
