Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Very, a software product development firm based in Chattanooga, Wednesday announced that it has been named one of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. The firm ranked in the top quarter of Inc. Magazine’s 2017 Inc. 5000 list, coming in at No. 1,146 overall and No. 15 in Tennessee. 

Now in its 36th year, Inc. 5000 is a list of America’s 5,000 fastest-growing private firms, which have created 619,631 jobs since 2014. 

Very is a full-service firm for companies seeking to validate, build and launch digital products and platforms. Very brings speed, agility and deep engineering experience to clients, helping them disrupt a market and beat competitors to the punch, said officials. The firm recently launched an investment arm, Very Ventures, which leverages its partners’ entrepreneurial backgrounds and extensive capital and talent networks to scale companies. 

“We’re honored to be listed among these world-class companies and entrepreneurs that are shaping the future,” said Jonathan Bragdon, a partner with Very. “At Very, our growth has been driven primarily by our commitment to attracting only top-notch, senior-level talent. So whether we’re validating a concept, building a product or augmenting a team, we bring the best design and development expertise to every project, for every client.” 

Based in Chattanooga with talent in 17 U.S. cities, Very is among five other Chattanooga-area companies that made the 2017 Inc. 5000 list. Since its launch in 2011, the firm has served a diverse portfolio of clients, including Thrive Global, founded by Arianna Huffington; The Environmental Investigative Agency; Relationship Science; The American Society of Mechanical Engineers; and Amalgamated Bank, the nation’s largest B Corp. Certified bank. 

“Working with a team like the one we’ve cultivated is the ultimate privilege in business,” said Tyler Jenks, a partner with Very. “By maintaining our commitment to continuous improvement and quality over expedience, we’ll be able to solve the problems that no one else can.”
