(Orlando, FL - March 18, 2021) – Inc. magazine today revealed that GLAD Empire leads on its second annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: Florida list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing Florida-based private companies. Led by Camille Soto Malave and Alberto Mendoza Nieves, the independent company reported about 4,721 percent revenue growth in a two years period. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Florida economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“It’s a real honor for us to be included in such an important list, alongside other small businesses who work day to day to fulfill their dreams. I feel very proud of our team and everyone who believed in our vision. We have worked long hours for years, with lots of dedication, and now, we can finally say that hard works pays off”, says Camille Soto, founder and owner of GLAD Empire.
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in Florida. Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 202 percent and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 83,000 people and added nearly $11 billion to the Florida economy. Companies based in major metro areas—Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Tampa, and Orlando—brought in the highest revenue overall.
GLAD Empire is a worldwide digital distribution, audio streaming, publishing management, sync licensing, video/audio monetization, digital content management, and video/audio production company established since 2006, with headquarters in Orlando, Florida.
With more than 15 years of experience in this field, GLAD Empire has been successfully characterized by its specialty, quality and commitment in the development of each project, serving each client individually, planning and directing each launch and marketing campaign to the public or corresponding market and at the rate that each product needs.
Its division, Get Low Studios, has four innovative music studios (three in Orlando, Florida and one in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico), available for the production, creation, recording, mixing and mastering music or any sound project with only the best sound engineers, the best recording team and renowned producers.
GLAD Empire's priority is that the artist or independent product has the opportunity, no matter at what moment they are, to have high-end services from the initial stage such as their structuring, production, administration and marketing of all their digital content.
