FROM THE SEPTEMBER 2014 ISSUE OF INC. MAGAZINE

Most of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S. launched using founders' savings, sweat, and prayer. They wouldn't have it any other way.

Matt Kendrall and Andrew Crichton co-founded San Francisco-Based Levitate Media (No. 237) in 2009, with a mission to produce high-quality live-action and animated promotional videos for tech companies, to help them explain often-complicated concepts in easy-to-digest ways. From his years working in sales and business development for tech companies, Kendrall knew there was a gap in the video-production industry: Plenty of outfits had the technical skills to create great videos, but he always had trouble finding any that were good at translating tech companies' ideas into layman's terms.

As Levitate grew and produced videos for clients including Autodesk, Hewlett-Packard, and SAP, the inevitable opportunities to get clients outside of the tech sector emerged. "One of the biggest struggles for us has been that we have a great idea and it's working, so can we deviate to non-tech companies?" Kendrall says. "We attempted it, and we came out of it realizing we looked like any other production company. We needed to stay true to our original vision. It might seem micro to focus on technology but its not. There are a lot of companies that qualify as tech. We do biotech, software, IT, consulting, aerospace."
