A market leader in hands-free video cameras, today ranks No. 7 on the 30th annual

The company moved up an exceptional 176 spots in its second consecutive year on the list, debuting last year as No. 183.

garage to the seventh fastest-growing private company in the nation,” said
Barros. “Being in Inc. 500’s top 10 further validates that the unique combination
of social, video and mobile not only advances Contour as a leader in action
video – but as a company to watch in general.”
