So far, 2018 has been an incredible year of growth for FastSpring.

Since the beginning of the year, we’ve grown our team by 33 percent with new team members joining every department. We’ve doubled the size of our downtown Santa Barbara headquarters, expanded into an additional office space down the street from HQ, and added a brand new Amsterdam office for our growing EU team.

And now I’m proud to announce we can add being included in the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing U.S. companies to our list of accomplishments!

The Inc. 5000 is Inc. Magazine’s annual list that recognizes private companies that have achieved notable growth. It is truly an honor to be mentioned alongside great companies like PopSockets, CoSchedule, and G2Crowd. It’s especially rewarding to see fellow local companies like Impact, Shiphawk and Nomad mentioned in the list as well.

Our guiding principles play a huge role in where we are as a company. We constantly strive to be at the forefront of commerce technology, eagerly seek to solve problems, face challenges with a positive attitude, take smart risks, and support colleagues in the innovation process. Which makes it so exciting to see when we are recognized by organizations like Inc.

I am incredibly proud of this team. I am humbled by their incredible work ethic, innovative thinking, and teamwork. All of which has brought us to this point of success. I look forward to what’s next for FastSpring, and can’t wait to share all of the great things that the team is working on.

On the behalf of the entire FastSpring team, I would like to take this moment to also recognize our wonderful customers who have chosen Fastspring as their ecommerce partner. These amazing feats would not be possible without your constant support, and we share this achievement with all of you.
