MT. PLEASANT, SC, August 27, 2019: Inc. Magazine named Q4Launch to its annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. It is Q4Launch’s third time on the list. It is ranked No. 2146. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“We are thrilled and honored to be included in this prestigious group. I’m so proud of what our team has accomplished together to create 187% growth,” said Matt Bare, founder and CEO of Q4Launch. “Our goal is to grow our customers’ business, and we have a proven formula for success. We believe this growth is a direct result of smart processes, a commitment to exceptional customer care and our ability to stay on the forefront of change in both the marketing and the hospitality industry.”

Q4Launch’s Core Values Are Key
In 2016, Q4Launch established 12 Core Values to support employees during an exciting period of growth. The values were also created (and plastered all over the office walls) to help the team stay focused in anticipation of yet another banner year.
“It’s exciting to be creating a business that has helped so many other small businesses thrive,” Bare said. “It is so important to hire well because we trust our growing employee base with our valued customers. We are humbled that such talented people have trusted us with their careers and have found fulfillment in helping property owners and property rental companies grow successfully.”
“Our culture evolved naturally,” Bare said. “Mostly from hiring people who were smart, customer-oriented, curious, marketing-savvy and fun! It worked, too! We are so proud of our team. But we can’t rest on our laurels, and we can’t take anything for granted. Our culture is critical to our combined success, and that of our customers, and we need to nurture it.”
