INC 5000 Recognizes Mindbody for Fourth Consecutive Year
San Luis Obispo, CA – Sept 2, 2011 – Mindbody, the largest online software provider in the health and wellness industry, has once again been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. This is Mindbody’s fourth consecutive year on the INC 500/5000 List, ranking 215 among software companies, and 1,184 overall. Mindbody has experienced 250% revenue growth over the last three years.
“We are honored to be recognized once again, and humbled by our accelerating growth, which is related directly to the success of our small business owner subscribers,” said Rick Stollmeyer, Mindbody’s co-founder and CEO. “Our mission is ‘Leveraging Technology to Improve the Health and Wellness of the World.’ We do this by providing our business subscribers with cutting edge tools that help them grow their businesses and better serve their customers in this tough economy.”
Mindbody’s growth is expected to continue well into the future thanks to increasing market adoption of its SaaS solutions, as well as recent $21 million investments from Bessemer Venture Partners and Catalyst Investors. This new funding will further accelerate the online software provider’s international expansion, taking its share of overall sales from 12% to 20% by 2014.
“To reach a broader international audience, we expect to increase our ranks by nearly 700 new employees in the next two years,” Stollmeyer revealed. “It’s a dramatic rate of growth for our company that will be supported by an expansion of services which is already underway.”
