Providence Business News recently announced the winners in its inaugural Fastest-Growing and Innovative Companies competition, which is designed to identify companies on rapid paths to growth as well as those that are developing innovations in their marketplaces.

At a time when public dollars are scarce, especially for economic development initiatives, which of those kinds of companies should receive support (which could be monetary or regulatory)?

fastest-growing and innovative companies, economic development, main street businesses, defensible innovation, rapid growth
