Web Advanced and Inc 5000

Hello Web Advanced Blog readers!

I am proud to announce that Web Advanced made the 2009 Inc 500/5000 list, as the 599th fastest growing company in the country. What it means to be on the Inc 5000 list? I think Janine Popick of Vertical Response said it best in this Inc article. Web Advanced is in good company with other growing businesses, the ranking and recognition will continue to help us attract top talents, and improve our company morale. Most importantly, the inclusion of Web Advanced in this list, meant that we have been working hard and doing things right for a few years in a row.

Next year, we'll need to improve by 99 spots (at least!) and get on the Inc 500 list. We are motiviated to work hard for all of our clients, and look forward to being a bigger & better organization in 2010.

Thank you for reading this, and for all of your support.

California Lifestyle & Felt Bicycles

Orange County (especially Irvine) is known as a wonderful place to live, and a great place to work. Recently, I was quoted in Business Week for supporting Irvine as one of the Best Small Cities for Startups, and I truly meant what I said. We are fortunate to live & work at a location that is sunny year round, and has temperate climate.

On a similar note, Web Advanced was fortunate to pick up Felt Bicycles as a new client. Felt is well known in the cycling world, as a primary sponsor for the Garmin-Slipstream team. Recently, Garmin-Slipstream finished 2nd in the team competition at Tour de France, behind Lance Armstrong's Team Astana.

Web Advanced is currently updating the 2010 Felt products into the website, and is excited to launch the website by September. Not only are we excited to be participating on such an exciting project, we also look forward to the latest road & mountain bikes, and other new products.

If anyone is interested in cycling around the local area, the Mountain to Sea Trail is one the best and most scenic trail around. You can take this trail from the hills of Orange, all the way to Newport Back Bay, and end up at the Pacific Ocean.
