Pushnami has had tons of things moving and shaking lately—here’s a recap!
Pushnami named Austin Business Journal Fast 50 Finalist
Pushnami was named one of the 50 finalists for this year’s Fast 50. The award is the Austin Business Journal’s ranking of the fastest-growing companies in Central Texas based on revenue growth from 2017 to 2019.
The final rankings will be announced during a virtual event Oct. 22. Pushnami CEO Emerson Smith is scheduled to participate in the virtual event. You’ll hear him tell the story of how we grew to our current revenue highs while remaining completely self-funded and profitable.
TrustRadius Tech Who Care
We are humbled to share that we received the 2020 Tech Cares Award from TrustRadius. The award recognizes exceptional support and care for employees, customers and communities during the global pandemic.
Pushnami’s platform was made completely free for six months after Covid-19 hit. Our monetary donations to impacted organizations increased, too, thanks to our employee’s passion for their missions. We’re on track to donate approximately $100,000 this year, with contributions to the Central Texas Food Bank, Dell Medical School, COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund and the Austin Justice Coalition.
Pushnami is part of a movement of approximately 1,400 companies in taking the #TimetoVote pledge. We’re providing all employees a paid day off to vote or work the polls on Nov. 3.
“The election this year could not be more important to our employees, their families and our community,” Pushnami Founder, Emerson Smith, said. “Because of this, we decided to give everyone the day off so they can make their voice heard, support whatever causes they are passionate about and even assist others in voting.”
There is a culture shift needed to increase voter participation in U.S. elections and we’re so glad we’re part of it.
Just a little name-dropping
P.S if you didn’t hear…the cast of Dazed and Confused will reunite for a live script reading fundraiser on Sunday, Oct. 11 at 7:30 p.m. ET. The event will raise funds for March for Science and the Voto Latino Foundation’s campaign to promote voting in Texas in the upcoming election.
Our office is located in the Emporium from that very movie. We’re proud to support voting initiatives and even prouder to make a historic connection to a movie that has impacted our culture. Alright, alright, alright!
Here’s a throwback to when we put Matthew McConaughey as David Wooderson on the side of our building at the request of the Austin subreddit.
