Inc. Magazine Names SPARC to the Inc 500 as the 15th Fastest-Growing Private Company in America


With a three-year growth of 12,862.5%, SPARC has earned the 15th position on the 2013 Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the US.

Charleston, SC–SPARC, a leading software product development company and an SC Best Place to Work Winner, announces its induction into the 2013 Inc 500. An exclusive listing of the nation's fastest-growing private companies, SPARC ranks 15th on the list with a three-year revenue growth of 12,862.5%, and is tops in both the software category and among South Carolina-based companies.

SPARC, known for its award-winning culture and ability to attract top talent, specializes in taking software product development from idea to market, offering everything from app prototype development to product launch strategy. SPARC develops software and mobile applications for the government and commercial sectors, specializing in health & benefits systems, intelligence security, employee recognition, green energy management, big data analytics, and mobile application development.

"To have SPARC earn the 15th position on the Inc 500 is a major accomplishment for our team, and reinforces our model of people-focused innovation," said Eric Bowman, SPARC CEO. "To be recognized in the top tier of the Inc 500 in our first year of eligibility reflects the effort, value, and energy the SPARC team brings to our customers every day."

SPARC will be featured along with brands like Intuit, Zappos, Microsoft, Pandora, Oracle, and LivingSocial in the September issue of Inc. Magazine.
