Make it Five in a Row for the Inc. 500|5000

For the fifth year in a row, Hot Studio has been recognized by Inc. as one of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States.

Posting a three-year growth rate of 123%, Hot was ranked #2,113 on the list—up from 2,365 last year. According to Inc., Hot was the 195th fastest-growing company in its industry, and the 88th fastest-growing company in San Francisco.

“We’re very honored to be included on Inc.’s list again this year,” says Maria Giudice, Hot Studio’s Founder and CEO. “These last few years have been challenging for every business, big or small. Hot’s ability to grow during these tough times is a testament to the talents and dedication of everyone here, as well as the continued faith of our clients.”

Hot has added thirty employees since 2010, significantly building out its new Strategy and Technology disciplines, as well as its New York office.

“We’ve tried to grow in ways that make sense for us, and our clients,” says Rajan Dev, Hot Studio’s President. “Today Hot’s able to envision, design, and build incredible products with our clients—we’re able to provide a really holistic set of services.”

Inc. established the Inc. 500 in 1982, expanding to 5,000 companies in 2007. The Inc. 500|5000 list has become a hotly anticipated indicator of entrepreneurial trends in the US, by geography and industry.
