NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2017 – Inc. magazine today ranked FATHOM Water Management Inc. (“FATHOM”) No. 1401 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This is the third year FATHOM, the utility-to-utility Smart Grid for Water technology leader, has appeared on the esteemed list representing the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses. Since FATHOM’s first appearance on the list in 2015, the company has jumped from No. 2960 to No. 1401 due to consistently strong growth. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, LinkedIn and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

Our mission is to unite the water industry by enabling water utilities of all sizes to unlock the power of big data and we’re proud to have Inc. bring visibility to our cause.”
