The NewsMarket - #13 in NY Technology Fast 50

Great to learn last night that The NewsMarket was chosen as one of the Technology Fast 50 companies in the New York Region.

The NewsMarket's increase in revenues of 1,182 percent from 2002 to 2006 resulted in our company placing 13th highest in the New York region in the Deloitte's Technology Fast 50 Program, which ranks the 50 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, and life sciences companies in the area by Deloitte & Touche USA LLP, one of the nation's leading professional services organizations. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from 2002-2006.

13,000 Media Outlets and Rising

The NewsMarket announced today another milestone reached in our continuing growth. Our site now has 13,000 media outlets in 193 countries registered to source video. That's a huge leap in just a year's time, as our numbers have grown from 10,500 outlets at the start of 2007 to now 13,000.

And being in 193 countries, The NewsMarket now has media outlets in every country in the world, according to Wikipedia.

More importantly than the numbers is that our core service is increasingly being seen as an integral tool in reaching the world's media. New clients like Facebook, Second Life and LinkedIn (brand new!) all see the benefits of using our platform. And that's why The NewsMarket is increasingly becoming Where Video Means Business.
