Blue Fish was recently selected as one of the fastest growing companies in one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Each year, the Austin Business Journal identifies the Austin Fast 50 – the 50 fastest growing companies in town. Blue Fish ranked 10th on their list for 2008.
Being selected to the list is fun, because it shows that even after 9 years, we’re still making our clients happy and they are giving us more and more projects to work on.
On a related note, I recently returned from a conference of entrepreneurs where I saw some old friends and made several new ones. It was great to hear them talking about all the positive things going on in their companies and how they are still doing well despite the economic downturn. It’s true that lots of companies are hunkering down for a cold economic winter, but others see the need to control costs as an opportunity.
Here at Blue Fish, many of our clients hire us to help them increase the productivity of their knowledge workers by improving the way they manage and work with content in the enterprise. Our solutions have helped our clients cut costs, improve sales, and reach more customers. This is exactly what companies need to do during tough times, so I don’t see any reason that we won’t continue to thrive regardless of the macro economic conditions out there.
