Every year, you have questions. We have the answers. The annual MSP 501 application attracts some of the biggest and most successful MSPs in the world. Filling it out takes time, because it gives us a comprehensive understanding of your business.


Fill out an application. You might celebrate with your peers at the MSP 501 awards dinner in September.

But every fall, hundreds of MSPs feel gratified for filling out that MSP 501 application when we celebrate them during a festive gala at Channel Partners Evolution. This year, we are combining our traditional fall show with the rescheduled Channel Partners Conference & Expo.

One of those frequently asked questions involves how you describe your revenue on the application. Do you list your full organization’s revenue? Or just managed services revenue?

You’ll find the answer in the video above, where Channel Futures and MSP 501 senior editor Kris Blackmon tackles that question. Kris also describes the brand-new NextGen 101. That list features some smaller, rock star MSPs who might deserve to make the MSP 501, but whose smaller revenue makes them a better fit for this new category.

When done watching, go here to fill out the MSP 501 application.
