Where are the state’s fast-growing private firms? Not here, if you ask these guys

Who are the state's fastest growing private companies?

My guess is that it has to include Spokane's Green Cupboards and at least a few other risers, like Imprezzio Solutions.

Not according to a survey produced by Puget Sound Business Journal. We just took a look at it and we saw not one company from our side of the woods.

Here's the full list of 100. If you spot a company that is from over here, let me know, and I'll buy you a cup of joe for the help:

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.

Gravity Jack signs a deal to share code with Seattle firm ARToolkit

Liberty Lake app developer Gravity Jack has announced a recent deal with Seattle company ARToolworks.

Gravity Jack, which was launched in 2009, will license its technology so ARToolworks can add it to a software development kit.

A quote from Gravity Jack CEO Luke Richey, found on a Seattle website, read: “The business implications and application development possibilities are mind-blowing.”

“For companies that are bleeding edge enough to envision the possible applications of augmented reality iOS Development and Android AppDevelopment, this partnership will allow us to make those visions a reality,” he was quoted saying.

Both companies are working on projects related to Augmented Reality, the use of computer software to provide layers of information that supplement maps, photos or device-based explorations of cities, malls or locations.
