The business-texting software provider ranks among the 500 fastest-growing companies in North America

SEATTLE – Nov. 9, 2017Zipwhip, the leading platform for conversational business texting, today announced it ranked 14th fastest-growing company in Washington state on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. Zipwhip revenue grew 224 percent from 2013 to 2016.

Zipwhip CEO and co-founder John Lauer cites the company’s 2014 pivot to providing B2B software as the defining factor in the company’s rapid growth; Zipwhip provides companies with an easy-to-use platform for conversational texting from their existing landline, VoIP or toll-free phone number. “The market for conversational, two-way business messaging is huge, and as the company that invented business texting, we’re in the best position to bring powerful messaging software to modern companies,” said Lauer.

“The Deloitte 2017 North America Technology Fast 500 winners underscore the impact of technological innovation and world class customer service in driving growth, in a fiercely competitive environment,” said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “These companies are on the cutting edge and are transforming the way we do business. We extend our sincere congratulations to all the winners for achieving remarkable growth while delivering new services and experiences for their customers.”

Zipwhip recently closed a $22.5 million Series C funding round, after a successful Series B round just 10 months earlier. The new capital is being invested in the core network, accelerating the product roadmap and scaling sales and marketing efforts.
