Venture Capital Firm and Inc. Magazine Recognize Outskirts Press Self Publishing with “Best of the Best” Honors

13 Oct

Outskirts Press, the fastest growing full-service self-publishing and book marketing company is among the top 5 companies that Inc. Magazine and Menlo Park,
California VC firm Foundation Capital cherry picked from the Inc. 500 list as being the “best of the best.”

To identify the best of the best, Inc. Magazine asked a panel of venture capitalists to review their annual Fast 500 list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in America. The Fast 500 was announced in the September issue of Inc. Magazine. Outskirts Press was the only self publisher on the list, at #268, with a 3-year growth rate of 850%. In the October issue, Inc. Magazine recognized 5 companies from the list, including Outskirts Press, as being the “best of the best.”

“I love the conceit of the company,” Foundation Capital’s Adam Grosser said. “Blogs and wikis have made it easy for people to get their views out there, but if you have something long to say—like a play or a book—then it’s incredibly hard.”

Not so for authors using the full-service custom self publishing services of Outskirts Press, which publishes approximately 160 unique, high-quality books each month. The competitive difference and contributing factor to Outskirts Press authors’ successes is that, unlike competing companies in the industry, Outskirts Press also offers their writers marketing support and services for book promotion after publication. Indeed, one Outskirts Press author, Gang Chen of Irvine California, recently earned over $111,000 in author royalties in just six months.

“In this day and age of blogs and quote-unquote ‘free publishing’, truly successful authors have the potential to separate themselves from the pack by publishing with a full-service, custom publishing company that provides support before, during and after publication,” said Outskirts Press CEO Brent Sampson.

The top five Inc. Magazine “Best of the Best” companies as identified by the panel of venture capitalists were Kiva Systems of Woburn, Massachusetts; SkullCandy of Park City, Utah; Centro of Chicago, Illinois; Outskirts Press of Parker, Colorado; and Enalasys of Calexico, California.

Look for the October issue of Inc. Magazine on newsstands and publish with confidence with Outskirts Press.

    I am trying to reach someone to ask information about your best of the pulbishers with 110% refund. I tried to call, but not able to get through to anyone. I also have placed a couple of emails and no one has gotten in touch with me. I am not able to upload my short story for eval or talk live to someone.

    Can anyone help?

    Do you publish poetry? If not, who does?
