Buffer Makes Entrepreneur Magazine's Annual Entrepreneur 360™ Ranking of America's Best Privately Owned Companies

Buffer Named No. 57 on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Annual Entrepreneur 360™ Ranking Of America's Best Privately Owned Companies

For the fifth year in a row, Entrepreneur magazine has identified businesses that they determined are mastering the art and science of growing a business. To do this, they evaluate companies on five metrics: impact, innovation, growth, leadership, and business valuation. Buffer is thankful to be recognized on the list for the second year in a row.

This recognition comes shortly after Buffer surpassed $20 Million in annual revenue and at a time when Buffer’s CEO Joel Gascoigne recently described Buffer in a blog post as “a fundamentally different company.” He goes on to explain that the company’s recent evolution and expansion “has turned Buffer into a company with multiple products and as a result, multiple revenue streams. Having several revenue streams is setting us up to be a more sustainable, profitable, and long-term company.”

Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine, elaborated on the ranking by saying that "every entrepreneur knows that a healthy business isn't just about growth.” He went on to explain, “it's about being well-rounded—growing your culture and your systems as strongly as you grow your revenue. That's why we're excited to celebrate these companies with our fifth annual Entrepreneur 360. The companies that make the ranking have pushed boundaries with their innovative ideas, fostered strong company cultures, impacted their communities for the better, strengthened their brand, and grown impressively as a result."

Buffer was ranked number 57 on the list out of 360 total companies and the ranking of each company was based on the analysis of 50-plus data points organized into five pillars: revenue and customers, management efficiency, innovation, financial evaluation, and business valuation.
