June 2010
The Portland Business Journal has named this year's 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies, with rankings based on revenue growth from 2007 to 2009. "As you may have noticed, a few things went awry in the economic environment over that period," noted editor Craig Wessel.  Yet despite the recession, three of Montlake Capital's portfolio companies found themselves, not only in the top 100, but among the top 10 fastest growing companies in Oregon and Southwest Washington. 

Congratulations to Max-Viz, ranked #6; Wellpartner, ranked #4; and this year's fastest growing company, ClearAccess, ranked #1!

In the future, it's easy to imagine a time when every room in the house will have an internet connection and movies will be downloaded online, not rented from video stores. That's where this year's fastest growing company comes in.  Read more
