ESCgov Inc. makes its debut on the Fast 50 list in the No.1 spot, having recorded $46.5 million in revenue in 2007, for a five-year annual growth rate of 275.59 percent.

In 2003, Raj Mittu and Guy Speers founded McLean, Va.-based ESCgov, which stood for Enterprise Solutions Corp. To meet the government's growing demand for greater accountability, the company replaced the traditional time — and materials — billing model with what they call a next generation method that permits agencies to pay only for the information technology services they use — as much or as little as needed.

"Agencies want to be able to account for the value received for every dollar they spend," Speers said. The best technical solution is of little use if we don't also make it affordable, actionable, and accountable.
