I was curious to look at the distribution of fastest growing companies by sector from Inc Magazine’s yearly list so I imported them to a spreadsheet and graphed the results. See below.
Not surprisingly software and IT services are two of the leaders in growth. Healthcare isn’t necessarily a surprise as high growth. Advertising and marketing is a little interesting. I suspect their may be some tech companies within this category to account for the growth here.
Note: It’d be more interesting to actually just have more detail from Inc on company categories as there is significant overlap between IT and software and Advertising, likely, and it’d be better to know more about the specialties of these companies to make this more insightful.
