For a second time, Gorilla Logic has been recognized on this year’s fastest growing businesses in Boulder Valley Mercury 100 list. The list acknowledges privately owned companies in Boulder and Broomfield county that have experienced substantial growth over the past year. Companies are separated into five flights based on their earnings, with the first flight companies generating revenue above $6,700,001. Mercury 100 hosted an award ceremony at the Lionsgate Event Center in Lafayette to specifically honor the top 5 companies in each flight.
Gorilla Logic ranked NO. 5 in Flight I, showing 67% growth in revenue during 2015. Other companies featured in Flight I include Bobo’s Oat Bars, Minute Key, Vertiba and Ascent Builders Inc. Previously in 2012, Gorilla was named NO. 16 on Mercury 100’s list of fastest growing companies in Boulder.
Referencing Gorilla’s accomplishment this year, company CEO and Co-Founder Stu Stern said, “We are pleased to be one of the fastest growing tech companies in one of the world’s most innovative tech hubs.” Back in 2002, Stu started Gorilla Logic alongside Ed Schwarz, who works as the company’s VP of Engineering.
Schwarz also had some encouraging words to share about Gorilla’s ranking. He voiced, “The ceiling really is unlimited in the Front Range. We’re proud to be driving that growth, bringing the terrifically skilled and motivated tech people in our Band of Gorillas to the companies that need it most.” Such companies include Wells Fargo, Verizon Wireless, J.P. Morgan and Zappos.com.
