Inc. magazine today revealed that Aureus Tech Systems is No. 2143 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment-its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino's Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
"We are honored to be included in the rankings alongside such impressive companies for the third time in a row. Aureus's vision and strategy has always been to create cutting-edge solutions that put our customers one step ahead. Aureus's sustained annual growth is a testament to not only the increasing prevalence and validity of cloud and edge technology, but our solutions and products putting companies at the forefront of digital transformation," said Sujata Bhattarai, CEO, Aureus.
One of the key drivers for Aureus Tech Systems' growth is continuous investments in R&D to help with clients' mobility and cloud transformation.
In 2014, Aureus was at a crossroads. They were doing well as a technology consulting business, but needed to decide whether to continue down the same path of traditional technology consulting or transform to meet the growing demand of cloud-based software.
"Our instinct to switch gears, heavily invest in R&D, and transform into a cloud-based solution and product company turned out to be the best decision we could have made. The biggest challenge for an entrepreneur is to create a robust and scalable organization that aligns with a high-growth strategy. To accomplish this, we focused on a combination of people, process, tools and domain expertise. And Microsoft Azure and our growing partnership with Microsoft has been a great enabler. We are grateful to Microsoft for their continued investments in our research and development initiatives" stated Abhishek Pakhira, COO, Aureus.
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 20) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists.

"The companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success," says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. "There's no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities."
