We defined a medium company as one having between 50 and 200 employees. To determine the top 5 fastest growing midium-sized companies, we used the San Fransico Business times "100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the Bay Area". which ranked the companies based on revenue growth between 2014-2016. The companies that had less than 50 employees were eliminated and the top 5 selected based on revenue growth. Since most of the companies in the list did not provide any information on their digital marketing solutions and strategies, we refered to the LinkedIn profiles of digital marketing managers (or senior staff) to determine the type of digital marketing strategies that these companies use.

All the information has been entered in the provided spreadsheet.

Five of the fast growing companies in the San Fransisco Bay area include Sauce Labs, Quid, Twilio, Ideascale, and Doximity. Deloitte published a report called the 2017 Technology Fast 500 Ranking, which was used to determine the five companies. We then located the rest of the information through websites, press releases, and other trusted media sites. Most of the companies are privately held so we had to find the revenue from news articles as available. For the companies where the revenue was unavailable, we used Hoovers or Owler to get an estimated value. The companies have been added to the spreadsheet, in rows 7-11, along with their website, business type, marketing details, revenue, employees, growth and sources.
