As a recap, this annual list reviews and ranks high-growth, privately-held companies with under $250 million in annual revenue. The methodology according to Forbes:
Though we prize growth numbers on our Most Promising list, top line doesn’t say everything. We want sustainable growth, so we strive to take a holistic gauge of the companies that apply. Over the course of four months we reviewed hundreds of applications from businesses across the country. The final assessment is based on growth (both in sales and hiring), quality of management team and investors, margins, market size and key partnerships.
Joining the ranks of such high growth startups like Instacart, Slack and Box as well as close-to-our-heart local franchises such as Pizza Studio and 9Round, we are grateful and honored by this achievement.
Continuing the trend of accomplishments from last year, this marks the beginning of a great 2015 and we look forward to maintaining the trend in the year to come! #SignpostWins
