Bryan Johnson, CEO
Chicago

No. 47
2010 Revenue: $4.6 million
Three-Year Growth: 4,156%

When Bryan Johnson’s (pictured third from right) first stab at building a small business, a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) company, fell apart in 2007, Johnson didn’t sit around for long. Two months later he founded Braintree, a company that helps merchants process online credit card payments. Braintree has forged partnerships with other burgeoning small businesses like Animoto, 37Signals, and SCVNGR to help them streamline their payment systems.
