FastTech 50 Winners Appear on 2006 Inc. 500 List

I want to say congratulations to VeriCenter, DataCertThe Merrick Group, Gimmal Group, and RigNet for their inclusion on Inc. Magazine’s 2006 Inc. 500 list. 

Similarly to the FastTech 50 and the Aggie 100, the Inc. 500 list recognizes the top 500 privately held, independent companies with the greatest revenue growth from 2001 to 2005.

Overall, Texas had 32 firms listed with 10 of those firms right here in the Houston area. Looks like the Fast Tech 50 is doing a great job in recognizing some of the Houston area’s most successful companies!

The article accompanying the list states:

            “It is the story of how entrepreneurship has energized the economy and captured the public’s imagination in the late 20th and early 21st centuries”

I wholeheartedly agree with the author of the article. These lists are important because they show the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well both here in Houston and across the country. You don’t have to be part of a huge mega-corporation to for your business to be a player in the global marketplace. 

Does your company pay attention to these lists? Do they help you to set goals for your company’s growth? If you have appeared on any of these lists, has it had a positive impact on your company?
