100 Fastest-Growing Companies
My guess is that most people would make two types of guesses. Some people would guess firms associated with familiar and popular brands. This is usually an incorrect guess for a list of this kind because the second type of guess is usually the correct one: Small nimble companies you don’t recognize after reading their names but ring a bell after learning about their products.
This list is a bit of an oddity from my way of thinking because a well-known relatively large company tops the list: Research in Motion (aka RIM) – makers of the BlackBerry smartphones. Searching for other well known tech firms, I see Apple at #39, Synaptics (touchpads) at #43, and Amazon at #52. Google is shows up at #68. And, Garmin at #84, is the last mobile tech related firm (that I recognize) in the list.
