To recognize the fastest growing technology companies in the New York City metropolitan area, Lead411 recently launched its “Hottest Companies in New York City” award. Smartling made the inaugural NY list, which started out with nearly 2500 companies and ended with the top 65 picks.
The Lead411 research team started with privately held companies in the Software, Wireless, Internet, Hardware, or Media industry located within the New York City region.
The list was filtered with the following criteria:
- 100% increase in revenues over the past 2 years; or
- Over $5M in funding in the past 2 years
The team then reviewed copious press releases and articles about venture capital funding, company launches, new office openings, customer wins and the like to determine which companies are fastest-growing in their industries.
