So the Inc. 5000 list of the country's fastest-growing companies has just been released, and the results indicate that entrepreneurship is alive and well in the magazine industry, despite the waves of bad news recently. A slew of magazine companiesNext Step Publishing, BZ Media, EH Publishing, Agile Business Media, the Pohley Co., Schofield Media Group, Mental Floss, and the parent company of this Web site, Red 7 Media, which made the list for the second year in a row.  made the list, including

And magazine industry suppliers are represented too. Nxtbook Media, one of a growing and highly competitive category of digital magazine providers, was named 303rd fastest growing privately held company in the United States, and 38th fastest growing company providing business services in the U.S.

Nxtbook was the only digital magazine provider on the list, which is a real feather in that company's hat, and also a bit surprising, because of the rapid growth this sector is experiencing. 

Inc. wrote this about Nxtbook: "Why it's growing: Creates an innovative digital extension of its clients' print brand, which gives them worldwide distribution and opportunities to increase revenue. Also claims to use aggressive marketing tactics at important tradeshows."

What's noteworthy: "We are a new company in a renovated 100-year old building. "It's like an old standard with a new purpose, which is a lot like who we are: a high-tech company giving the printed medium new life," says CEO Michael Biggerstaff.
