We've Been Named a North Carolina "Company to Watch"

image

The Escapist's parent company and publisher Themis Group was named one of 25 "companies to watch" in North Carolina.

You know, in general we here at The Escapist like to think that we're doing something right. We have a five-year tradition of publishing thought-provoking written content, we have some of the best video series anywhere on the internet - and that's just the start.

That's why we're very proud to announce that our parent company Themis Group has been nominated as one of only twenty-five North Carolina Companies to Watch by the Council for Entrepreneurial Development. The entrants on this list are entrepreneurial-level companies that "demonstrate high performance in the marketplace, exhibit innovative products or display other unique qualities that make them 'worth watching'."

"Themis Group exemplifies the innovation and entrepreneurial spirit that lead to success in the marketplace and in the future," said CED President Joan Siefert Rose. "CED is proud to recognize the accomplishments of all our 25 winners and their significant contributions to our state's economy."

Sometimes you just need to stand and take the compliment, and this is one of those times. All that, and we have crazy Nerf battles, too!

Atleast my state likes this site.

How could the entire world not want to watch the Escapist? Were that awesome.

Congrats :)

And soon.. The world! Nyhahaha!

I thought the escapist was Australian... :s

Now you have to buy private jets and executive restrooms.

Conglaturation !!!

You have created
a great company .

And prooved the justice of our culture .

Now go and rest our
heroes !

:D

Now, I need to get a giant caKe, with a E on it and some punch...maybe some pizza.

FargoDog:
Congrats :)

And soon.. The world! Nyuuuuuu!

Sorry I had to.

And congrats, now buy all your members a trip to hawaii! (or is it too soon? :P)

Well congratulations then.

I was a bit scared when it said Company to Watch. As if there were a chance that Themis might be the next to go down.

We'll be watching... carefully.

For a second there I thought we'd been put on some kind of terrorist/criminal watch list.

That'll teach me to read more carefully.

...I see what you did there. And it was rather funny :) Well done, sir.

Well congrats, it must be such a honor to have that award.

Lets celebrate everybody!

I thought when you said "Company to watch" I thought you meant in the McCarthy/Terrorism sense of the word. Got me worried there.

Anyway, good for you all, company and community alike! You write the nice articles, make the nice video series', and play the games for us, and we sit back and complain about it. It's a healthy balance, and it's why we're on top!

...REALLY weird to see my state in the news. Especially when dealing with the Escapist.

This reminds me, I've never actually seen anyone ask just how PROFITABLE the escapist is? I mean, it's hard to believe that you keep such an awesome site with so much content running with just ad revenue.

One of the 25 companies to watch? A company spending 80% of their time nerf battling and 20% on Comic Con and alike? Poor North Carolina.

Woah, keep the banhammer away, that was a joke.
Don't hurt me, I need the Escapist to survive!

Congratulations guys! Russ, break out the champagne and bonus checks! :D

Strippers too?

Well, hopefully we won't have any bigger companies wanting to eat us, now that we're on the map.

We're based out of Durham, NC.

Congratulations!

I would leave it at that but that would be considered low content...
So, instead I will tell you that you are all awesome and deserve a medal, or a cookie. Whichever you would prefer.

But seriously, congratulations. You all deserve it for the work you put into the site.

Furburt:

Yeah, I thought that at first glance too, but all is well now.

OT: Conga-ratulations Themis, though I still see you as an oppressive force for some reason.
Kind of like an Evil Gigantic Corporation-y thing, and I don't like them, but they've brought us the escapist, so I really can't complain if they start sucking our brains throught tubes. If it means we get ZP, Unskippable and all of the other videos and articles every week, I'll put up with it.

And...?

You quoted me and answered the 2nd person's post but not mine. Just wondering why you quoted me.

Congratulations to Themis Group. Hopefully this will guarantee the long life of the Escapist for many years to come.

Be careful Escapist, it seems North Carolina knows of your army sized Nerf armoury...

Maybe North Carolina could be made to... disappear... under a hail of Nerf bullets.

Congratulations anyway

After this morning's Nerf wars, I wouldn't have been surprised if that WAS the meaning of the article. :#:

(they'll take down our best men first... Private Yahtzee, Corporal Butts... And then the big ones)

But then where would they work?

OANST:
Nobody cares.

Thank you for that.

Awesome job, guys! Keep making awesome things!

If Yahtzee is one of our best men, then why is he only a private?

I'm disappointed in you, escapists. To let a meme this obvious go untouched for 25 posts.

For shame. For shame.

-m

What can i say? Well done! :D

I'm off to buy some stock in Themis media.
I'll be richer than Scrooge McDuck, Now where did I put my monocle, top hat and pipe?

This is our first step towards WORLD DOMINATION!

Either way, congrats guys!

Hell yeah, we are one step closer to world domination. Well done Escapist, you deserved it!

You guys deserve it. You make a top quality product that is great for mooching.
