Lead411’s 2013 Tech 200 List, which identifies the fastest-growing privately held tech companies in the US, certainly shows growth in the tech and marketing sectors that can’t be ignored.
The information services company looks at businesses that are U.S.-based, privately held and earned more than $1 million in revenues in 2012. Those with the highest percentage revenue growth from 2010 to 2012 are ranked, and the top 200 companies are honored.
Diverse industries made up the list
Airpush, a mobile ad network, left the competition in the dust, topping the list with its 12,400 percent three-year growth and revenues of $50 million. Not bad for a company founded in 2010.
While you’d expect the usual software (Tallie, Mobifusion) and sales and marketing (eGumball, DiscoverOrg) companies to make the list like they do every year, there were a number of surprising industries that made an appearance.
“It’s always nice to see companies that aren’t in the expected categories, like web development, marketing, or software, make the list,” said Lead411 CEO Tom Blue. “We’re getting more diverse applications each year, so it’s great to be able to include some of these in the top 200.”
While cloud-based software companies like Sanity Solutions and Pedigree Technologies peppered the Tech 200 list, there were a few hardware companies such as C&K Systems and Dinerware that made the cut as well.
