Outskirts Press Named Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Company

Outskirts Press, the fastest-growing full-service self-publishing and book marketing company, today was recognized once again by Inc. Magazine in its annual Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private businesses.

“As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Outskirts Press shares a prestigious pedigree with such notable alumni as Microsoft, Timberland, Under Armour, and scores of other powerhouses,” according to Jane Berentson, Inc. Magazine’s editor-in-chief.

The 2011 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2007 to 2010. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2007. Additionally, they have to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. The minimum revenue required for 2007 is $100,000; the minimum for 2010 is $2 million.

2011 marks the third year in a row Outskirts Press has appeared on the list.  Outskirts Press first appeared in 2009 with a ranking of #268, and in 2010 held a ranking of #1266.  For the third year in a row, Outskirts Press lands on the Inc. 5000 in 2011, with a ranking of #3088 and a three-year growth rate of 65%.

“We are honored once again to be named to the Inc. 5000,” said Brent Sampson, CEO of Outskirts Press. “This is a true testament of our commitment to quality, customer service, and value for our authors.”

The announcement comes on the heels of the recent launch of the Outskirts Press app for the iPhone 4 and the recent introduction of e-books for the iPad with iBooks Distribution option. Learn more about Outskirts Press at http://outskirtspress.com.

  1. To Whom it May Concern:

    I am looking for a publishing company (I am sixteen) but am unsure of where to go. I’m looking through several and came across Outskirts Press. I’m curious to know if Outskirts Press publishes only E-Books or actual hard/soft copies of novels.
