Florida can proudly lay claim to the No. 1 fastest-growing private company on the new Inc. 500 annual ranking, just out online and in the September issue of Inc. magazine. The winner? Miami's Northern Capital Insurance, a homeowners insurance startup founded in the wake of so many hurricane-wary, departing insurance companies. Northern Capital's three-year growth in revenue: a whopping 19,812 percent. In Florida, 27 businesses made the Inc. 500. Here are the seven that made it from the Tampa Bay area.
