San Francisco, CA, Aug. 12, 2020 — metadata.io, the autonomous demand generation company, today announced that Inc. Magazine revealed the company’s ranking as No. 233 on its 39th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
With three-year revenue Increase of 1869.18%, this is the first year that company has made the Inc. 5000 list and will be featured in the September issue of Inc.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. This achievement puts Metadata among an elite group which has included companies such as Microsoft, Vizio, Intuit, Oracle and many other well-known names that gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“This is an incredible testament to our innovation and efforts to transform marketing and ABM as we know it,” said Gil Allouche, CEO of Metadata. “CMOs today are under constant pressure to create pipeline at scale and show the insights and impact on revenue and ROI of each program. We are listening to our customers and passionate about offering an autonomous demand generation platform that consistently and reliably delivers marketing KPIs with minimum time and effort. Our rapid growth and this prestigious acknowledgment are validation that our continued work will disrupt the status quo as marketers know it.”
Metadata’s autonomous demand generation software is a huge advantage for marketing teams as it sets the entire martech stack on autopilot by connecting existing tools and putting them to work. With Metadata, B2B marketers can take the guesswork out of their demand generation campaigns by getting the right content in front of the right people and building a predictable flow of MQLs and pipeline. Experimental marketers from companies like Zoom, Pendo, Udacity and Vonage have experienced as much as a 4.5X ROI in as little as 90 days using Metadata. Metadata’s rapidly growing customer base continues to praise the technology for helping achieve B2B marketing results beyond the scale and scope they previously thought possible. On average, Metadata customers achieved positive ROI within just seven months compared to 17 months from competing platforms.

The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
