Business.com, the leading business search engine, directory and pay-per-click advertising network, today announced that it has been named to Deloitte's prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program for Los Angeles.
The Fast 50 is a ranking of the 50 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies in the area by Deloitte & Touche USA LLP, one of the nation's leading professional services organizations. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from 2002 to 2006.
"Our rapid growth is a reflection on the fact that Business.com has become a 'must buy' for B2B advertisers based on our ability to connect thousands of advertisers with millions of business buyers every month," said Jake Winebaum, Business.com's founder and CEO, and now president of R.H. Donnelley Interactive. "By delivering a great user experience for business decision makers and strong ROI to our advertisers we have been able to generate consistent profitable growth."
To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2002 and $5,000,000 in 2006, be headquartered in North America, and be a company that owns proprietary technology or proprietary intellectual property that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology.
