About the Tech 200
Tom Blue, founder of Lead411, initially assessed the top 500 tech companies, but realized there was a lot of disparity from the top of the list to the bottom. Last year, he decided to only honor the top 200 companies, and he hasn't looked back since.
“What’s interesting about the top 200 on this list is that a handful of companies stay on the list, while the rest are newcomers,” said Blue. This year, company growth was slightly less than it was last year: this year’s companies grew an average of 3.3x from 2009 to 2011. Last year that growth was 3.45x. But the companies at the top of the list (the top 50) grew an average of 5.5x, skyrocketing them faster than the rest of the list.
