“We started this business to make a difference in how people get together to address important technology challenges and execute meaningful solutions.”
Remarked Susan M. Kidd, founder and CEO of DRT Strategies
“We are honored that Inc. Magazine has again, for a fifth consecutive year, recognized the efforts of our talented employees, customers, and partners who collectively, are the real power behind DRT Strategies’ incredible growth story.”
“What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 15 through 17, 2014 in Phoenix. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show “The Profit” Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.
