Praetorian Digital Named to Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

Praetorian Digital Ranks No. 4,029 on the 2017 Inc. 5000 with a Three-Year Sales Growth of 70%  

SAN FRANCISCO - Praetorian Digital, the leading online media company in the public safety market, announced it has been named one of Inc. Magazine’s fastest-growing companies of 2017. Praetorian Digital came in at number 4,029 on the list for the annual Inc. 5000, which ranks the nation’s fastest-growing private companies across all industries.

The Inc. 5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy — America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. Companies are ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing the previous three years, and must be privately held, for profit, and independent. Other media companies featured on this year’s list include publication Digiday, personal finance website The Penny Hoarder, and ConsumerAffairs, a site that helps consumers make smarter buying decisions.
Praetorian Digital was founded in 1999, and has seen a 70% growth in sales in the past three years driven in part by the success of its learning and grants divisions, in addition to media.

"It’s an honor to be recognized among the top 5,000 companies for the fourth time and a testament to our continued innovation and evolution as a business,” said Alex Ford, CEO of Praetorian Digital. “Our mission of providing resources and information that helps keep our communities safe continues to fuel our growth and expansion. We have a passionate and hardworking team committed to making a meaningful difference in the first responder and local government markets we serve.”

The 2017 Inc. 5000 serves as an illustration of the fastest-growing private firms in the country, which together created 619,631 jobs in the last three years. As they've done in the past, policymakers and business leaders will continue to look to the Inc. 5000 companies for fresh ideas on achieving growth and creating jobs.

Within the Inc. 5000, Praetorian Digital was named #54 in the Media Industry. California topped the Inc. 5000 with the most companies of any state making the list.
