White Horse, a full-service digital agency specializing in Web 2.0 media convergence, ranked No. 2685 on Inc.'s annual ranking of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the country. The list offers the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy--America's independent-minded entrepreneurs.
"Our second annual Inc. 5000 continues the most ambitious project in business journalism," said Inc. 5000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. "The Inc. 5000 gives an unrivalled portrait of young, underreported companies across all industries doing fascinating things with cutting-edge business models, as well as older companies that are still showing impressive growth."
"2007 witnessed significant growth in both retail and B2B, with incremental revenue from social media marketing, online advertising, and user-centered design," said Jennifer Modarelli, White Horse CEO. "We engaged with 20 new clients, including Nike, FEI, Tektronix, Papa Murphy's, and Reser's Fine Foods, and have been able to develop innovative Web 2.0 marketing for them."
White Horse was also listed as one of the top 50 companies in the Portland OR/Vancouver WA metropolitan area.
