iDirect Technologies

"What it does: Sells hardware and software for satellite Internet connections to telecom companies and defense contractors. Why it's growing: In 2001, CEO John Kealey shut the company's broadband service to focus on selling satellite routers to companies like MCI and France Telecom. "Our competitors try to sell to a big customer and then compete with it on service," he says. "It's hard to convince someone you are committed to their success when you are competing against them."
