    Company rankings sell advertising but are often based on a single metric (say, revenue) and don’t take a comprehensive approach to evaluating a business’ potential. Sizing up younger, privately held firms is even trickier: Their fortunes can change very quickly, and they aren’t obliged to share their plans and finances with the public. With the help of

    Implantable Provider Group

    $19.6 million

    Founded in 2004, the company buys medical implants (like pacemakers), gives them to hospitals and collects reimbursement from insurance carriers directly. Hospitals like this arrangement because they reduce cash outlays on inventory and avoid dealing with carriers; the carriers like it because they tend to reimburse IPG at a lower rate than hospitals require. IPG makes money by purchasing implants in bulk (at lower prices) and selling them to carriers at a markup. The company raised $35 million from Sequoia Capital in March 2010.
