Randall Nelson, founder
PhaseWare
McKinney, Tex.

A West Point graduate, Nelson spent four years in the Army before starting his first business, RamQuest, which he sold four years ago. Today, he runs the 10-employee, $500,000 PhaseWare, which offers customer service management solutions. “I think the discipline we learned in the Army was a big reason for my success,” he says.
