LOS ANGELES, Jan. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Raw Sugar Living, a handcrafted natural and organic lifestyle beauty brand, was recently recognized as one of the "Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America" by Entrepreneur magazine's Entrepreneur360™ List, a premier study delivering the most comprehensive analysis of private companies in America. Based on this study forged by Entrepreneur, Raw Sugar is recognized as a well-rounded company that has mastered a balance of impact, innovation, growth leadership and value.
"To be recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine is a great honor, and we're humbled to be included among such esteemed companies," said Ronnie Shugar, Co-Founder & CEO, Raw Sugar Living. "It reflects our commitment to always lead with excellence—from handcrafting the highest-quality products, to building a culture based on integrity, to helping our local communities through our give-back initiative."
Every year, The Entrepreneur360 List identifies 360 outstanding small businesses for the value they provide to the world beyond the worth of their company.
"Our annual evaluation of vetted data offers a 360-degree analysis of top privately-held companies across a multitude of industries," explains Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur Magazine. "They are deemed successful not only by revenue numbers, but by how well-rounded they are. The companies that make the list have pushed boundaries with their innovative ideas, fostered strong company cultures, impacted their communities for the better, and increased their brand awareness."
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 five metrics reflecting major pillars of entrepreneurship—innovation, growth, leadership, impact and business valuation.
Said Raw Sugar's Co-Founder & Chief Marketing Officer, Donda Mullis: "This recognition means so much to us, especially because it acknowledges companies that are making a real difference on the community level. At the end of the day, the way we make people feel about themselves matters most to us. And, it's why we created the Raw Sugar brand to not only make clean healthy living more accessible to everybody, but to also inspire them to love the skin they're in."
