If you’ve been following start-up culture and are looking to break into business magazines, you might find a home in Inc.

While Inc. occupies the same shelf space of other business publications like EntrepreneurFast Company and Forbes, the magazine has a distinction that separates itself from its competitors.

“We are a magazine about people who are incredibly passionate and have the will to start a business from scratch,” said Alexandra BrezInc.‘s managing editor. ”We are different because of our sophistication, as well as our connection to and interest in community events. And we are a very likable brand. People are proud to be featured by us.”
