Here are the top Pacific NW companies on Inc. 500 list: Level 11, HasOffers, Spoken, Puppet Labs and others

inc500Just how important is the technology industry in the Pacific NW?

Well, consider this: Of the 13 companies from Washington and Oregon in the Inc. 500 of the fastest growing privately-held companies, 11 have strong connections to the tech industry, from Spokane e-commerce powerhouse GreenCupboards/Etailz to Seattle mobile advertising upstart HasOffers to Portland’s fast-growing Puppet Labs.

Interestingly, Seattle-based helmet-mounted camera maker Contour, which led the Washington companies on the list in 2011, ranking 7th with revenue growth rate of 11,663 percent, has fallen on tough times as we reported earlier this month. (SeeContour closes Seattle HQ, shocks employees — execs mum on status of GoPro rival).

This year, just 9 companies from Washington state made the list (here’s a full look at those on the Inc. 5,000), which is ranked by revenue growth over a three-year period. Interestingly, just one is classified in the software category, while three of the four Portland companies are software companies.

Here’s a look at the top companies on the list.

    Congrats to all the Washington state companies. You have achieved something few companies have achieved. BUT Check out #2 on the list, that seems like a total FAKE.

      List shook up a bit last night: #2 is now #3207, and the rest of everyone moved up a slot (or two – I think there was another move as well).

      Congrats to every company on the list!

    Has Offers bought that spot, it’s just a marketing blitz. typical scam.

      Hi Robert, I don’t usually feed the trolls, but I have to say that I can 100% confirm that this is not a sponsored list and we absolutely did not pay for the spot. Feels pretty terrible to be accused of it though…

      Robert, I’m pretty positive you can’t “buy” a spot on the Inc. list, it’s based on revenues and growth in revenues.
