Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal Honors Fastest Growing Private Minnesota Companies
Minneapolis, Minnesota - October 24, 2014 – Agosto Inc., one of the world’s most experienced Google for Work Partners and cloud product development firms, today announced that it has been named to the 2014 Minnesota Fast 50 list by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. The Fast 50 ranks the fastest growing privately held companies in Minnesota by revenue growth rate over the past three years. This year’s list includes organizations from a wide range of industries with at least one thing in common: they have all grown during a time of continued economic challenge.
Agosto came in at number fourteen on this year’s list. In the field of IT, Agosto has expanded its business by helping enterprise clients to implement cloud services including Google Apps for Work. The company has also established a strong cloud product development business, recently launching the Cloud Storage Gateway, a fully managed, cloud-integrated storage solution for backups, storage and disaster recovery. Agosto builds cloud software using Google’s Cloud Platform, delivering cost-effective, scalable, and rapidly launched products.
“Agosto is growing steadily by listening to the needs of the market and by addressing those needs with top-notch cloud products and services,” said Agosto president Aric Bandy. “It’s an honor to be named to the 2014 Fast 50 list this year in recognition of our continued strong revenue growth.”
Bandy and Agosto’s CEO Irfan Khan accepted the award for Agosto last evening at the annual Fast 50 awards ceremony in Minneapolis.
“It’s gratifying that the expansion of our cloud product development business has contributed to such rapid growth and earned us a place on this prestigious list,” said Khan. “We’re looking forward to an exciting end to this year and to continued growth in 2015.”
