San Diego, CA

Inc. magazine released their annual Inc. 500 list today and for the 3rd straight year was ranked on the prestigious list of top 500 companies in the country. The Inc. 500 is an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies and represents the most comprehensive list of independent businesses and entrepreneurs. FortuneBuilders, the premier national real estate investing education and coaching company, based out of San Diego, CA, continues to innovate the industry with best-in-class coaching, training, and business development resources.

“FortuneBuilders is extremely proud to be recognized for the 3rd year in a row and it’s a testament to our team, our systems and our students,” said Than Merrill, CEO of FortuneBuilders. “We are honored by the recognition and it represents the importance of providing the best possible education and resources for our students. In a difficult economic time people are looking for the best opportunities for them and their families. We take pride in teaching our students how to grow an investment business that gives them that opportunity, and our inclusion not only validates our efforts but drives us to work even harder.”

The 2012 Inc. 500 list marks the third consecutive year that FortuneBuilders has been honored, and exemplifies the culture of constant improvement within the company and educational offerings. FortuneBuilders’ sustained growth is indicative of those efforts. Formerly ranked #1 in education and maintaining a ranking near the top for three straight years is a significant achievement.
