For the seventh consecutive year, internet lighting retailer 1000Bulbs.com has been honored by the Dallas 100™ Awards, placing 44th amongst 100 of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the Dallas area for the year 2013. Co-founded in 1990 by the SMU Cox School of Business and the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship, the Dallas 100 Awards are now in their twenty-third year of recognizing the growth of independent companies and the entrepreneurs behind them.

In order to qualify for the Dallas 100, a company must meet criteria based on a number of factors such as legal status, location, sales history, credit report, and character. The guidelines for this year’s awards are as follows:

  •     Are independent, privately held corporations, proprietorships or partnerships (not subsidiaries or divisions of a parent company) as of May 1, 2013. Must have at least 3 years history and not be a non-profit organization,
  •     Be headquartered in the Dallas Metroplex area,
  •     Have sales of more than $500,000, but less than $75 million in fiscal year 2010,
  •     Have a three-year sales history which reflects growth during the three-year sales period, and
  •     Have a credit report and character satisfactory to the Dallas 100, determined at the sole discretion of the Dallas 100.
