Aug. 16, 2012 - PRLog -- Inc. magazine has ranked ScholarBuys NO. 2101 on its sixth annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.  ScholarBuys joins Yelp, yogurt maker Chobani,, KIND and famed hatmaker Tilly’s, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.

"We are honored to be included on the 2012 Inc 5000 list." said ScholarBuys Co-founder Matt Ryan


The 2012 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2008. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2011. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2008 is $100,000; the minimum for 2011 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at
