So, what is EBQ’s secret recipe for growth?

How do we manage to continually rank on the Inc. 5000 list and continue to grow?


1. We’re in the business of growth.

EBQ provides outsourced teams specializing in Data, Marketing, B2B Appointment Setting, Sales, and Customer Experience. Our services are meant to fill the gaps in companies’ business structure, and our #1 mission is to help our customers grow.

Our offerings place us among the third largest group of Inc. 5000 honorees. Those that fall into the category Business Products and Services made up 8.52% of ranked companies over the last 11 years.

2. We embody continuous improvement.

Inc.’s recognition of EBQ’s recent growth comes soon after our move to a new, much larger office space in April. As an outsourcing company that promises our clientele “people as a service,” the upgraded space has enabled us to better serve both our customers and employees.

“I never thought we would be on the Inc. 5000 list 1 time, let alone 6 times. As we worked to create growth for our customers, we inevitably grew our own company and created the ultimate win-win scenario with our clients.”

– Tim Edwards, CEO of EBQ

3. We focus on the right things.

EBQ largely attributes its continuous growth to 2 key points of focus:

  1. Our clients deserve the very best of our efforts.
  2. Our employees deserve the opportunity for growth.
And these points work together — by giving employees opportunities for growth, EBQ creates better experiences for clients. EBQ team members are empowered by continuous subject matter training and 100% internal promotion. Employees at EBQ are experts in their specializations and each outsourced team is supported by 3 tiers of management, resulting in an outsourced team that can work independently or closely alongside clients’ internal teams. As client Jill Black, VP of Marketing at Onit, put it, “EBQuickstart is not your typical outsourced vendor. Their specialists truly feel like a direct extension of our team. We are all working hand-in-hand towards a shared goal.”

4. We’re in the right place at the best time.

As an Austin-based company, EBQ joins over 100 other companies located around the “Live Music Capital of the World” who ranked on the Inc. 500 this year.

“Austin is now growing four times faster than most of Silicon Valley — drawing talent and startups from all over the country,” according to Inc.’s 2018 Surge Cities list, which named Austin as #1 on the list that tracks economic momentum.

EBQ is fortunate to be based in a city that comes with a large talent pool of sales and marketing professionals. Austin is home to multiple universities, a growing population, a growing startup scene, multiple tech giants (see: Apple, Amazon, and Facebook), and the annual South-by-Southwest conference.

With a massive business community and well-educated workforce, our location is just one more advantage that allows us to give our customers the best service possible.

EBQ: Past & Future

To summarize, we are honored to make it on the Inc. 5000 for our 6th time! Looking back over our years of ranking, we are proud of the progress we continue to make and look forward to growing alongside our clients in the future.

As we approach the future, one of our big objectives is bringing on more team members, not only to fill out our new office, but to increase our capacity for helping our clients grow too. We know we wouldn’t be receiving this honor from Inc. if it weren’t for our main goal: helping you exceed yours.
