Epic, a health care software company based in Wisconsin, is often called, “The largest company nobody has ever heard of.” It was built with no marketing nor outside capital, yet made an estimated $1.2 billion in 2011 – a 45% increase over the previous year! The CEO, Judy Faulkner, has the following mantra: “Do good, have fun, make money.” The company truly takes the motto to heart – especially the ‘having fun’ part.

The following photos were taken at various vendor booths.
