Founded by Paul Hurley in 2007, ideeli (this year's Inc. 500 No. 1 fastest-growing company) is continuing to generate new members. The site sells everything from clothing to home goods to travel goodies. Hurley told Inc. that his company's dependable growth comes from an aggressive pursuit of suppliers and forming good relationships with both established brands and up-and-coming designers. It's this process that has given ideeli a loyal customer base—rare in the ever-expanding daily deals realm.
