by: lfi in News

Inc. today ranked LEAP Interactive No. 3,295 on its annual ranking of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the country. LEAP rose 930 spots from its previous ranking in 2007.

2008 has been an outstanding year for LEAP. In addition to its rise on the Inc. 5,000 charts, LEAP also won numerous awards for creative and promotional projects and has been awarded several new key accounts.

"It's always nice when the hard work is recognized, and it's also inspiring to be listed among the best of the best," said Daniel Knapp, President of LEAP. "We have a fantastic team of people here at LEAP and their efforts make all of our success possible."

The Inc. 5,000 list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy — America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.

"Our second annual Inc. 5,000 continues the most ambitious project in business journalism," said Inc. 5000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. "The Inc. 5000 gives an unrivalled portrait of young, underreported companies across all industries doing fascinating things with cutting-edge business models, as well as older companies that are still showing impressive growth."

The 2008 Inc. 5,000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2004 through 2007. To qualify, companies must be U.S.-based and privately held, for profit, independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies — as of December 31, 2007, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2004, and $2 million in 2007.
