OnlineGURU Inc. Named Among the 2008 Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in America.
SAN DIEGO, Calif. August 20, 2008 -- Today, Inc. named OnlineGURU to its Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country with a three-year sales growth of 390.7%. The Inc. 5000, an extension of Inc. magazine's annual Inc. 500 list, recognizes many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as a number of high-growth smaller firms. These companies contribute significantly to the U.S. economy.
OnlineGURU Inc. simplifies the lives of the online community by developing and operating user-centered Web sites. Much of its growth during the period from 2004 to 2007 is attributed to the broad appeal of the topic covered on its flagship-DMV.ORG: The Unofficial Guide to the DMV. More than 65 million visitors a year come to learn about how to take care of transactions at their state's DMV; it's one of the Top Five automotive sites and one of the Top 300 Web sites in the United States.
OnlineGURU's CEO and cofounder Raj Lahoti, 26, said that he is very proud of the efforts of his team of Gurus. "We are always looking for better ways to present complicated information in a way that the average person can easily understand. We analyze our pages to make sure they are readable and intuitive, and we welcome our visitors' comments so we can continue to improve the site every day. We combine the latest Web principles and technology with quality products and services to produce the best Web sites we can."
Using its successful model for DMV.ORG OnlineGURU Inc. will apply its expertise to many more domain names the company currently owns.
The 2008 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2004 through 2007. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based and privately held, independent - not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies - as of December 31, 2007, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2004, and $2 million in 2007.
