PlayOn! Sports Named on the 2023 Inc. 5000 List

ATLANTA, August 15, 2023 – PlayOn! Sports, a leading high school media and technology company, has been named on the 2023 Inc. 5000, the annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. PlayOn! ranked 1,673 among 5,000 thriving companies on the esteemed list.

“We are honored to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 list as we embark on another successful school year,” said David Rudolph, PlayOn! founder and CEO. “This nomination reflects our team’s commitment to driving innovation to better serve high school communities nationwide.”

PlayOn! was founded in 2008 with the purpose of honoring and celebrating the achievements of high school students, coaches and administrators throughout the country. With the NFHS Network, GoFan, rSchoolToday and VNN, the PlayOn! team elevates the event experience for schools and fans across streaming, digital ticketing, scheduling and sports marketing.

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
