Which Idaho or Eastern Washington startups belonged in today's story?

Today's SR story on three growing Spokane area startups is part of this newspaper's yearlong look at jobs and employment challenges.

The three we focused on are were digital marketing agency Seven2, green online retailer  GreenCupboards and Liberty Lake software and app developer Gravity Jack. All three showed the same pattern: gradual and steady growth in a relatively new market or industry, along with the ability to land  work from outside the immediate region.

We didn't do one thing, and maybe our readers can help. What are the best examples of fast-growing startups in North Idaho or in the rest of Eastern Washington?  We considered Coeur d'Alene-based Pacinian, a company with immense upside. But much of its work to date has been beta development and the firm has yet to announce any one big deal with a major customer.

There are certainly other job-growing startups we didn't include. Please pass along any suggestions by posting them here.
