WiredScore named to 2017 Inc. 500 as Wired Certification adoption grows across EMEA and North America
Inc. magazine today ranked WiredScore No. 320 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list is a snapshot of the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— independent small and midsized businesses. Companies including Microsoft, Dell, Pandora, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000. The Inc. 5000 rankings have recognized WiredScore among 17 Real Estate companies leading the sector’s growth in 2017, including Triplemint, The Garret Companies, and S2 Capital.
“We are incredibly pleased to receive this recognition, especially as we gear up to launch operations in Germany and Canada later this fall,” said Arie Barendrecht, CEO and Founder, WiredScore. “Not only are we proud to contribute to the dynamism of the U.S. economy ourselves, we are committed to our mission to lower barriers to digital connectivity within office buildings for all companies, big and small.”
The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 16) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
"The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
WiredScore is the organization behind Wired Certification, the internationally recognized digital connectivity rating system for commercial real estate that helps landlords design and promote their buildings' great digital connectivity to tenants.
WiredScore launched Wired Certification in partnership with Mayor Bloomberg and the City of New York in 2013. Since then, more than 350M Sq. Ft. of office space has been certified across North America and Europe, including buildings owned by premier landlords such as Blackstone, Brookfield, and Hines.
In an increasingly tech-driven economy, connectivity is fast becoming the most critical requirement for tenants when selecting office space. The widely recognized Wired Certification seal is a trusted symbol that identifies buildings that have been independently certified to provide the best-in-class connectivity infrastructure that businesses require to thrive.
Tenants around the world trust Wired Certification as the benchmark for best-in-class office connectivity. For more information on Wired Certification or to find Wired Certified buildings, visit: www.wiredscore.com
