NEW YORK, August 17, 2016 – Inc. magazine has named Hedgehog to its 35th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Hedgehog Development, LLC (www.hhog.com), a leading global provider of digital solutions, has been recognized for the sustained growth of its strategic design, technology and marketing services. It is the second time the company has been named to the list.
“Hedgehog’s recognition among the Inc. 5000 companies validates our client strategy and company direction. It is a testament to our vision on how to execute and focus on client success for business-critical development of websites with complex requirements,” says Dan Galvez, Co-founder and CEO of Hedgehog. “The maturity, success and continued growth of our business is based on our three pillar model of discipline, focus and process.”
Hedgehog has continued the expansion of its strong agency development and creative business into multiple geographies, opening West Coast and European offices and expanding its offerings, to better meet the needs of its growing global customer base. The company also rose in the list to be ranked among the top third percentile of companies.
“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”
The Inc. 5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.

(available on newsstands August 18 to September 22) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%.
