A Utah tech company continues to boast its fortune for the fourth-straight year.
Boostability, a search engine optimization and digital marketing company, made the Inc. 5000 list for the fourth-consecutive year, making one of the fastest-growing companies in the country.
"We're excited to make such a prestigious list four years in a row," said Boostability CEO Gavan Thorpe in a statement. "It's a fantastic achievement and a testament to the success of our clients and partners. We're helping their businesses grow, and because of that ours has grown too."
Boostability ranked at No. 4,460 on the list.
Jared Turner, Boostability's co-founder and chief technology officer, said the company’s success comes down to its ability to sell digital marketing to companies for a low price, which helps it earn clients at like Google.
But he said Utah — specifically the Silicon Slopes tech scene — have also made it possible for the company to succeed.
"I think the population growth that Utah has experienced and the influx of technical companies and larger companies has created increased competition," Turner said. "As a result, the bar has been raised for the general workforce, so we have a great pool of current and prospective employees."
Thorpe said that the nearby colleges make it easy to recruit talent, too.
In total, 111 Utah-based companies made the list. By comparison, California, the home of Silicon Valley, had more than 700 businesses on the list.
