Denver – June 11 – In conjunction with its 10th anniversary, the American Business Awards has selected Qualvu as a finalist in its “Fastest Growing Tech Company of the Year” category, which recognizes companies for outstanding revenue growth. Since 2002, the American Business Awards have been honoring the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and business people worldwide, and have since become one of the world’s most coveted business recognitions.
Qualvu, which pioneered the use of asynchronous online and mobile video for qualitative consumer research, started in 2008 with two entrepreneurs who were confident they could develop a way to turn market research on its head. That they did, and in the process they created over 75 jobs, scorching a 4,900% growth rate over the past four years. During that time, Qualvu’s innovative software driven, people powered business model has not only attracted employees but businesses. In 2011 alone, Qualvu more than tripled revenues – with over 1,400 projects in 30 countries and over 200,000 video responses. In Qualvu’s short history, it has managed to distinguish itself as a leader in the industry – innovating every step of the qualitative research process across the spectrum of business needs to keep them connected with their target markets and ahead of their competitors.
“We have come a long way in a short amount of time and are honored to have been recognized for that by the American Business Awards,” said John Williamson, Founder & CEO, Qualvu. “I believe our ability to deliver better consumer insights to businesses faster and more cost-effectively than ever before has been a key factor in our accelerated growth, as well as our success. Any company that’s grown like Qualvu knows that in addition to a great business idea, it’s about great people creating value every day. We’ve attracted a lot of experienced professionals from diverse backgrounds, all coming together to create a new, streamlined, and effective solution in a category that has gone largely unchanged for decades. By hiring people who are constantly challenging the status quo because they believe they can do better, Qualvu has developed innovative, proprietary technology that elevates the qualitative research space and delivers efficient, consistent, and actionable recommendations that directly inspire strategic business decisions.”
The final placements of the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards will be announced on September 17 in San Francisco, CA. Stay tuned!
