No. 1

Three-Year Growth: 40,882%

Founded in 2006 and based in New York City, ideeli has pioneered the idea of the flash deals site and is the Inc. 500 No. 1 company this year. When the site launched, people mistook it for a wedding of Kmart and Overstock.com, but serial entrepreneur and founder Paul Hurley (not pictured), who previously consulted with high technology companies, envisioned something more exclusive. Up until 2010, the site required that new members be sent an invite code. Now anyone can register as a user and gain access to ideeli’s upmarket deals and luxury brands.
