Inc. Magazine has made Stealthmode an outreach partner, because it’s tough for them to find companies that grew last year. But I know SOMEBODY did, and this might be a good year to apply if that’s you. I imagine there are easier and more difficult years to make the list, and this would be an easier one.
Here’s what they sent out this morning.
“Inc. magazine is looking for the fastest-growing companies in America for its annual Inc. 500|5000 awards. If your company grew between 2005 and 2008, you could receive national recognition and visibility on this year’s list.
Although the formal application deadline has passed, Inc. is currently still accepting applications from members of our Inc. and partner networks.
One of the most prestigious honors in American business, the Inc. 500|5000 award ranks the 5,000 fastest-growing companies based on revenue growth over a three-year period, from 2005 to 2008. This year’s award will also recognize the top companies in many metro areas, regions, and industries, as well as the top minority and women-led companies—so you can help bring attention to your business community as well as your own company.
Click here to apply. Call the Inc. team directly at 1-800-248-0308 for questions or more information.
Spread the word! Send this email to any private company in your area business network! ”
And if you apply through that link, they’re tracking where the applications come from this year. They will know how good a communicator I am (or am not) by whether we generate applications. This has all gotten very transparent compared to what the process used to be in the past.
