“We were extremely pleased with our inclusion on the 2010 list,” said Darren Dupriest, president and CEO. “It’s very rewarding to be listed amongst companies led by some of the country’s most innovative entrepreneurs.”
2010 is Validity’s second year ranking on the fourth annual exclusive list. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.
“The leaders of the companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression,” said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. “The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs.”
The Inc. 500 list debuted in 1981 as a ranking of the 100 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. The following year, it expanded to the Inc. 500 and, in 2007, inaugurated the Inc. 5000. Through each evolution, Inc. has sought to recognize and to celebrate the creativity, dedication, and hard work that entrepreneurs put into building their companies.
