Inc5000 logoA pair of Bethesda companies made the top 500 of year’s Inc. Magazine’s list of 5000 fastest growing companies.

Mobomo, the mobile app developer based on Democracy Boulevard, came in as the No. 159 fastest growing company in 2013 with $2.8 million in revenue last year, up from $107,540 in 2009. The company is still small — it started in 2009 and has added 10 employees in the past three years for a total of 13 — but it is the highest ranking Bethesda company on the list.

Wellness Corporate Solutions, the Cabin John-based firm that creates wellness programs for corporate and government clients, came in at No. 357 in the rankings. It tailors health programming for offices. Its clients include a single office with 50 employees, multi-state corporations with 150,000 employees and many places in between. The company posted $9.3 million in revenue in 2012 and has added 46 employees over the past three years for a total of 51. It was founded in 2004.

Other Bethesda-based companies on the list include government cyber security and IT contractor Digital Management at No. 513 and online wedding organizer and services company WeddingWire at No. 613.

Digital Management reported a 2012 revenue of $162.3 million and has added 1,093 jobs in the past three years for a total of 1,212 employees. WeddingWire, which in the past year moved from Bethesda to bigger offices in Chevy Chase, launched PromWire.com and MitzvahWire.com and had a reported 2012 revenue of $19.7 million. WeddingWire came in at No. 309 on last year’s list.

Streetsense, the all-in-one retail and restaurant broker, architecture, design and branding firm, moved into a vacant space at 3 Bethesda Metro earlier this year. It came in at No. 2,129 this year and has added 50 jobs in the past three years.
