IPfolio Increases to Ranking No. 834 on the 2019 Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies, Posting 3-Year Revenue Growth of 510%

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., August 26, 2019 — Inc. magazine has announced that Intellectual Property Management solutions provider IPfolio jumped up to No. 834 on Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. IPfolio grew 510 percent over the past three years (2016-2019), successfully marketing its IP management technology to corporate IP law departments in and outside the U.S. IPfolio previously ranked 1003 on the 2018 Inc. 5000 list.

Founded in 2012, IPfolio was one of the only companies in the dynamic legal technology space to qualify for the Inc. 5000 list. IPfolio was acquired by the ipan/Delegate Group in 2019, a move to tighten integration of the Group’s services into IPfolio’s platform and further accelerate product development. ipan/Delegate has since announced a merger with CPA Global. The combined IP management and technology companies will deliver best-in-class integrated software, and IP services solutions for corporations and law firms globally.

The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment: independent, fast-growing small businesses. Technology giants including Microsoft, Dell, Pandora, LinkedIn and Yelp and many other well-known companies gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Rupert Mayer, IPfolio’s Founder and Chief of Product, comments, “The IPfolio team is certainly excited to have again increased our ranking on the Inc. 5000 list! New developments in our company have given us the opportunity to increase efficiency of product development, which has allowed us to continue to lead this evolving industry space and improve our offering for our fantastic customers. We’re grateful as always to Inc. for their recognition of the continued effort made by our team to meet and exceed expectations in our burgeoning market”
