By my quick count, 15 FastTech 50 companies and 4 Aggie 100 companies are on the list this year.
The Houston area has 14 companies in the top 500 and 104 on the overall list. Texas has a whopping 393 companies on the list! This reinforces how the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Houston and Texas.
Take the time to look at the Inc. 500 web page, as there is lot of great information, including podcasts, articles and in-depth top 100 lists.
