IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second year in a row, Entrepreneur magazine has published its highly anticipated Entrepreneur 360™ list, naming the "Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America." Founders of these companies, such as top-ranked RetailNext, Avant and Carvana, are lauded for growing businesses that expertly balance impact, innovation, growth and leadership.
Honorees were identified based on the results from a comprehensive study of independently-owned companies, using a proprietary algorithm and other advanced analytics. The algorithm was built on a balanced scorecard designed to measure four metrics reflecting major pillars of entrepreneurship—innovation, growth, leadership and impact.
"Our annual evaluation of vetted data offers a 360-degree analysis of top performers in the current small-business landscape," explains Lisa Murray, Chief Insights Officer of Entrepreneur Media, Inc. "They are deemed successful not simply by revenue numbers, but by how well-rounded they are. Entrepreneurship is a complex endeavor, and we've recognized who has mastered it this year."
The Entrepreneur360 feature also spotlights companies that exemplify each of the four pillars. BaubleBar, for example, has shown tremendous growth in funding and company size. Its co-founders, Amy Jain and Daniella Yacobovsky, share their investment strategies and how they envision scaling in the future. JotForm boasts impressive management and culture, thanks to its solid leadership. Founder Aytekin Tank reveals his reasoning behind a non-traditional staff structure and how he's developed his leadership style.
The top one hundred companies ranked in the 2016 Entrepreneur360 are featured in the November issue of Entrepreneur magazine. To see the full list online, visit: entm.ag/e360companies.
