The company ranked 1693 as a result of achieving significant customer
and revenue growth between 2010 and 2013 of 240%

aging population to connect, contribute and lead healthier lives," said

live a healthier life.

of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting
how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief
Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far
fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago.
But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American
