August 14, 2019 — Inc. magazine revealed that Aspire Software is No. 1134 on its Inc. 5000 list, an annual ranking of the fastest-growing private American companies. Aspire was the 129th fastest growing software company on the list. Well-known companies like Microsoft, Pandora, LinkedIn, Yelp, and Zillow have all previously been listed on the Inc. 5000.
“This is quite an honor,” says Aspire Software CEO Mark Tipton. “It reflects how landscaping and snow & ice contractors are adopting technology to transform how they manage their business. We’re humbled and proud that our clients are using our software to provide better services, improve margins, and increase productivity.”
Aspire Software is a St. Louis, Missouri-based company that helps landscaping, snow & ice, and construction companies provide better services, improve margins, and increase productivity through use of a fully integrated business management software. It was founded in 2013 and saw three-year revenue growth of 350 percent. Earlier this year Aspire announced it had received an investment from Mainsail Partners, a San Francisco-based growth equity firm that invests in growing, bootstrapped software companies.
Aspire has also been recognized as a “Five-Star Winning Workplace” by St. Louis Small Business Monthly, and one of the fastest-growing private companies in St. Louis by the St. Louis Business Journal.
Aspire’s culture of teamwork, service, and product innovation fosters an environment for its employees to succeed in serving its clients. The success of these values is demonstrated in Aspire’s inclusion in both the Inc. 5000 and Five-Star Winning Workplaces awards.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 list have followed many different paths to success,” says Inc. Editor-in-Chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
