Global market intelligence solutions provider GMI (Global Market Insite, Inc.) ranks #229 on the list, with three-year revenue growth of more than 1,004 percent from 2003 to 2006.

"Innovation in online research has spurred our tremendous growth. GMI was one of the early pioneers, but to stay a leader, GMI must keep the customer first," explains Mike Brochu, GMI's CEO. "We've already built a better mousetrap, looking ahead we must continue to make our products more effective and user friendly. Reliability, usability, and excellence in service, are our primary focus."

"If you want to find out which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500," said Inc. editor Jane Berentson.

The Inc. 500 list is Inc. Magazine's tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition."
