GoLive! Mobile launched in 2006 and brought in $36.3 million in 2010 by providing mobile content to subscribers.
CEO Asher Delug
Company: GoLive! Mobile
2012 Rank: No. 734
3-Year Growth: 476%
2011 Revenue: $49.7 million
A low-budget television ad ("Text now, and receive a joke a day!") inspired Asher Delug and Steven Austine to start GoLive! Mobile, a company that sends videos, social-network notifications, and other information to users' mobile phones. At first, the company set up mobile text services for clients such as NBA All Star Tracy McGrady, who had a mobile fan site, and the FBI, which ran a text-message-based tip line. But Delug and Austine eventually realized that it was more profitable to create and sell their own mobile content. Today, they operate FlirtSpin, a mobile dating service; CinemaMob, which sends links to movie clips; and FoneSocial, which texts customers when they receive updates on Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter. After someone signs up for one of the services, a monthly fee appears on his or her phone bill. The company has one million paying subscribers.
