We are proud to announce that we are number 1498 on the list of 5000 fastest-growing private companies in America as rated by Inc. Magazine! The announcement was made in August that we had made the list by obtaining approximately 250% growth during the rating period. We were so happy to know that we had made the list – especially during these economic times!
Jeremy and I went to DC in September to accept our award. Inc. Magazine has developed a conference around the 500/5000 list and I recommend all entrepreneurs check it out (regardless of whether you’re on the list or not)! The conference is packed with great speakers including Tony Hsieh and Jim Collins (I’ll write about those highlights next) as well as fabulous break-outs and sponsors. Oh, and did I mention the opportunity to be surrounded by 5,000 of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs?
The two-day event was closed out with an amazing awards gala. A black-tie event where Jeremy and I got a chance to pick-up our award.
After everyone got their awards, there was a group photo. Can you see me and Jeremy? We’re in the third row from the back – ha ha.
The evening was finished off with a party – entrepreneur style! It was really fun!
Sadly, the only thing that didn’t rock was the band. It was an 80’s cover band that highlighted the worst aspects of that decade (think Toni Basil meets Cyndi Lauper rolled into Culture Club).
