The Advertising & Marketing sector has the most companies on this year's Inc. 500 list, with 60. This industry shows aggregate revenue of more than $1 billion and a median growth rate of 1,266 percent.

These companies delve into every possible niche in the field, from guerrilla and grass-roots marketing (WDFA Marketing, No. 5), to in-text advertising in online games (Future Ads, No. 56), to face-to-face marketing in kiosks and door-to-door marketing (Deluxe Marketing, No. 85), to messages played to callers while on hold (HoldCube, No. 95). Government Services is a close second, with 59 companies, aggregate revenue of $1.3 billion, and a median growth rate of 1,389 percent.

Here we find companies supporting the military with health services (Luke & Associates, No. 3) and cultural awareness training (Lexicon Consultants, No. 4), as well as the broader federal government with general contracting (The Penna Group, No. 13; Ayuda Management, No. 22) and IT services (Insignia Technology Services, No. 29), to name a few.

"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 500 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." Forbes Article
