MentorMate has been recognized for its swift growth by placing on the 2012 Inc. 5000, the 2012 Flyover 50, and, now, the 2012 Minneapolis-St. Paul Biz Journal Fast 50 list.
Minneapolis, MN – October 19, 2012 – The Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal has released its annual Fast 50 list of fastest-growing private companies in Minnesota. MentorMate, an up-and-coming web and mobile application development firm, placed 7th on the list in its first year of recognition.
This marks the 14th year the Fast 50 list has been toasting Minnesota companies and their success. To be considered, honorees need to show three full fiscal years worth of steady revenue growth with sales totaling at least $2 million in 2011.
2012 has been a rewarding year for MentorMate, both literally and figuratively. The company’s three year growth rate of 223.76% is compelling evidence to support the rising demand for businesses and organizations to embrace mobile. When asked about adjusting for a steady workload increase, MentorMate’s CEO and Founder, Björn Stansvik, responded by mentioning his strategy for finding talented employees, adding, “We operate a Mobile Academy complete with teachers, curriculum, and classrooms. We market to students, pay them to study, and offer jobs for the students who meet our stringent criteria.”
One of the ways MentorMate is gearing up for the forthcoming mobile surge is through the backing and sponsorship of MobCon, an annual mobile marketing and strategies conference, set to take place at the Minneapolis Hilton on November 13th-14th. The conference will provide a platform for leading mobile executives, strategists, and business professionals to share their stories and ideas for how organizations are using mobile to reach customers and create competitive advantage.
