NEW YORK, Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine ranked Standing Dog Interactive (www.standingdog.com) No. 925 on its 29th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. This year's list includes 158 Dallas companies.
"Fast growth at any time is a big achievement; fast growth during the past few years is just short of miraculous," said Inc. editor Jane Berentson. "The Inc. 5000 consists of these just-short-of miraculous companies, the ones that through ingenuity and ambition have increased revenue, hired employees, and grown fast in difficult economic times."

The 2010 Inc. 5000, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. magazine (available on newsstands through November 16 and on Inc.com), is a group of companies that are smaller but much faster-growing than last year's crop. Aggregate revenue is $11.3 billion—down from last year's $18.4 billion—but median three-year growth is 1,231 percent, substantially up from last year's 880.5 percent. The companies on this year's list employ more than 45,000 people. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at Inc.com/500.
Despite the ongoing recession, the 2010 Inc. 5000 offers a glimpse of the future of the U.S. economy. In the health sector, which saw aggregate revenue of $1.1 billion and a 917 percent median growth rate, businesses are moving forward on cancer and stem-cell research, clinical trials, and medication management. More than 25 percent of companies in the energy sector ($2.5 billion aggregate revenue; 942 percent median growth rate) focus on solar and other alternative sources. Fewer than a third of retailers ($356 million aggregate revenue; 914 percent median growth rate) have even a single brick-and-mortar store. And the number of companies providing technical services to the various branches of the federal government continues to rise.
"We work hard to deliver tangible returns on our client's investment, and to be recognized by Inc. for our achievements and growth during one of the most economically difficult periods in recent history has been a rewarding experience for our company, our employees, and our great clients," said Mike Wylie, president of Standing Dog Interactive.
