Broadview based its map on revenue information from a Hoover’s database of company profiles, and used the location of each company’s corporate headquarters to determine which businesses “belonged” to which states.
“We noticed that many states did not have companies included in the [Fortune 500] list, so we decided to perform our own research to find the largest company by revenue in each state based on the location of the corporate headquarters,” wrote Russ Fordyce, a managing director at Broadview, in a Tuesday blog post about the map.
Many of the results are pretty intuitive. There’s Walmart in Arkansas, General Motors in Michigan and Exxon Mobil in Texas. But in some states, especially the smaller ones, you’ll notice some surprising corporate heavyweights. Johnson & Johnson rules in New Jersey, while CVS is the big fish in Rhode Island’s little pond. Additionally, in the state of Washington, it turns out Costco trumps Microsoft.
You can check out an exhaustive list of the companies, their revenues and their locations here.

Talk about a visible spot. This massive electronic billboard is on top of the China Online Center, one of the downtown Hong Kong’s tallest buildings, so you know that when Russian duo “On the Roofs” hijacked it you know people noticed. The behind the scenes video follows the daredevils as they make their way to the skyscrapers’s roof to capture some incredible shots. in addition to GoPros the crew employs a drone to fly around the top of the skyscraper as they take it all. Before heading back down, the group hacks into the billboards display to broadcast their own message, “What’s up Hong Kong”, as well as clips from their vertigo inducing video from Shanghai. Watch them both and try not to get too dizzy. – 12oz
