Nowhere is there a more clear demonstration of this than in Entrepreneur's June issue profiling 100 Companies to Watch in 10 vibrant areas of opportunity.

The 100 Companies to Watch are making their marks in areas as far-ranging as mobile technology, outsourcing, fitness and pets. Take the category of outsourcing with Ian Ippolito, who launched Rent A Coder, a site that connects businesses with a global freelance market of programmers.

In the area of seniors, even Florence Henderson is exercising her entrepreneurial muscle with FloH Club, her new tech service for—of course—seniors. Other businesses are uniquely answering growing demands and needs in domestic services, home improvement, handcrafted goods, health and fitness, value and green sectors.
