Squaremouth, a leading St. Petersburg, Florida-based travel insurance comparison website now in its third consecutive year on the Inc. 5000, has been named one of the fastest growing companies in the country by Inc. Magazine.
"Only a tiny fraction of companies have demonstrated such remarkably consistent high growth, particularly in the difficult economic environment of the past few years," Inc. Magazine President and Editor-in-Chief Eric Schurenberg said.
Joining the ranks of Zappos, Microsoft and GoPro with this distinction, Squaremouth was recognized as one of America's most successful privately held small businesses for its exceptional 153 percent growth over a three-year period.
Squaremouth compares travel insurance products from every major insurance provider in the United States. According to Squaremouth Co-Founder and CEO Chris Harvey, the company is in constant pursuit of improvement.
"We challenge everyone to question everything," Harvey said. "The 'Squaremouth Way' means never accepting the easy or quick resolution, but working to create the best possible outcome, regardless of how big or small of an undertaking it is."
The company was also listed as the 26th fastest growing company in Tampa Bay, rising 14 spots from the previous year’s ranking. It is the company's fourth time making the list by the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
"We were never in a rush to make money," Harvey said. "We took 5 years to build a world class comparison engine. Now, we have shifted our focus on providing the best travel insurance experience possible to our customers."
