Dataprise, Inc. has been named as one of America’s fastest growing private companies on the Inc Magazine’s prestigious Inc 500.

Dataprise President & CEO David E. Eisner credits a unique approach to supporting the technology needs of the small business market with the company’s 1340 percent revenue growth from 1997-2001. “We’re extremely excited to receive this recognition. It’s a direct reflection of the efforts of the entire Dataprise team.”, said Eisner.

Started in 1982, the Inc 500 ranks the nation’s leading entrepreneurial firms according to sales growth over the previous five years. Former Inc 500 companies that have gone on to become household names include Microsoft, Timberland and Domino’s Pizza. Dataprise’s increase in revenues of 1340 percent from 1997 to 2001 resulted in a 155 ranking on this year’s list.

“This is the first Inc ranking to reflect the full impact of the recession,” said Inc editor John Koten. “Yet these entrepreneurs are managing to confound the naysayers and move ahead despite the obstacles. They’re showing that smart strategies can succeed in even the toughest of times.”

To be eligible for this year’s Inc 500, companies had to be independent and privately held through their fiscal year 2001, have at least $200,000 in sales in the base year of 1997, and their 2001 sales had to have exceeded 2000 sales.
