LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) August 15, 2018

Fishermen Labs, a product development agency specializing in design and development for augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), mobile app, web, and emerging technology products, today announced its inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The 37th annual list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment— its independent small and mid-sized businesses. As one of the most prolific AR content creators in the world, Fishermen Labs has created AR experiences that have reached more than 100 million people. The company secured its position, number 185 on the Inc. 5000, after demonstrating 2344.5 percent growth over the last year.

Fisherman Labs joins the Inc. 5000 upon completing outstanding campaigns and projects for some of the world's leading companies, including Walmart, IAC, Sony, Paramount, Lenovo, the United Nations, and the Whitney Museum. Its momentum has been building since Snapchat selected Fishermen Labs as one of the seven most experienced AR and VR product development agencies in existence. Fishermen Labs is now authorized to help brands create fascinating and amazing new experiences for distribution in Snapchat through the Lens Studio program. Additionally, Fishermen Labs was designated as the fourth fastest growing company in Los Angeles County by the Los Angeles Business Journal, and company co-founder and CEO Eden Chen has been named to the Forbes 30 under 30 as well as the Los Angeles Business Journal 20 in their 20's lists.

"Fishermen Labs has experienced a phenomenal year of growth, and inclusion in the Inc. 500 caps it off," said co-founder and CEO. "This is a rapidly expanding market, and the Inc. 5000 further validates its evolution. It is clear that there is a strong appetite for new, AR and VR experiences, and we are excited to help industry leaders elevate their product development initiatives."

In addition to Fishermen Labs' industry-leading AR and VR offerings as well as discovery and design services, the company will be debuting a new product called Sonar in the coming weeks that will provide account managers with visibility into their clients and projects.
