The Internet Mini-List: A Subset of the 2000 Inc. 500


This is the year the Internet hit the Inc. 500, Inc. magazine's annual list of the fastest-growing privately held U.S. companies, big time. One indicator? Of the 500 companies on this year's Inc. 500, 64, or 12.8%, used the word Internet, E-commerce, Web, E-business, E-something, .com,.net or on-line either in their name or in the brief description Inc. magazine publishes of what their companies do. That's more than a twofold increase from 1999.

Still, those 64 companies, listed below, represent only a fraction of the Internet-related companies on the 2000 Inc. 500. That's because, in compiling this mini-list, we looked only at business names as published in the magazine, and at the brief business descriptions published in the magazine -- which are often shortened because of space constraints.Still, despite its obvious limitations, the mini-list below will give you a taste of the role that the Internet plays in this year's Inc. 500 class.

To find out more about these companies -- and the rest of the Inc. 500 -- consult a copy of the Inc. 500 issue of Inc. magazine. It hits newsstands starting October 17, but subscribers receive the magazine earlier. You will also find the information here at www.inc.com/500 in November.
