Anchorfree is 798 on the 2013 Inc.5000

inc5000Inc. magazine has recently recently released their 2013 list of 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S.

I am pleased to announce that Anchorfree, the maker of the popular Hotspot Shield app, has earned the position of 798!

It’s truly an honor to be part of a list that has included notable alumni such as Intuit, Zappos, Microsoft, Timberland, Jamba Juice, and Oracle.

How Did We Make the Inc. 5000 List

Inc. magazine takes applications to be featured in its annual list of 5000 fastest-growing private companies in January of each calendar year. The ranking is determined by the percentage revenue growth over a three-year period.

To qualify, companies must be generating revenue of at least $200,000 in the initial year and must be U.S. based, privately held, and independent.

Anchorfree’s growth over the past 3 years is an impressive 569%!

While we are happy that our hard work and dedication are paying off, we also know that our success and growth would not be possible without the support from our loyal users.

We would like to thank you for your continued support of our mission, which is to empower the billions of Internet users worldwide to get free access to the Internet and to use the Internet privately and securely.
