IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Entrepreneur magazine announces the launch of the Entrepreneur 360™ Performance Index, a study of the best American entrepreneurial companies. The publication will produce a first-of-its-kind list of business leaders who demonstrate 360 degrees of relevance to the core tenets of entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurship has evolved from a niche mindset into a powerful, mainstream movement that is now the playbook to success for businesses of all kinds. According to the 2014 Ipsos survey, 21.7% of adults consider themselves entrepreneurs. Those who embrace the spirit of entrepreneurship would benefit from a resource such as the Entrepreneur 360™ Performance Index to better understand the reality of successful business ownership.
"The listing explores the entrepreneurial ecosystem and the major players in it," says Amy Cosper, vice president and editor in chief of Entrepreneur. "Its multi-factor analysis isn't limited to the biggest or fastest-growing businesses, and the company's founder has to be involved in the day-to-day operations in order for the business to be considered. There is no other study out there doing this and we are focused on learning and sharing with the world what makes entrepreneurial companies succeed."
Business owners are invited to submit their company information in order to be considered for the ranking and possibly featured in the magazine by February 17.
Entrepreneur's balanced scorecard approach is based on a proprietary algorithm that will identify the entrepreneurs who stand above the rest. The Entrepreneur 360™ Performance Index will also tap into social media other third-party resources to analyze previously qualitative areas of entrepreneurial effectiveness and significance. Results will reveal an elite group of companies that will be distinguished for changing the world.
