Reston, VA (PRWEB) December 02, 2011
ThunderCat Technology today announced that it was named to Forbes Top 100 America’s Most Promising Companies List. Forbes‘ list of America’s Most Promising Companies features 100 privately held up-and-comers with compelling business models, strong management teams, notable customers, strategic partners and precious investment capital.
“Sizing up younger, privately held companies is hard: Their fortunes can change very quickly and there’s a dearth of public data,” says Forbes Executive Editor Brett Nelson. “We took a more comprehensive approach to evaluate their health and potential.”
To sharpen its search, Forbes teamed up with CB Insights, a Manhattan-based data firm that tracks investment in high-growth private companies. With $650,000 in grants from the National Science Foundation, CB has developed complex software called Mosaic that mines myriad online sources (from press releases and social networks to job boards and court filings) to come up with one, algorithmically derived score that measures a private company’s health. Forbes married Mosaic’s data-crunching with old-fashioned reporting to assemble a list of rising stars with bright growth prospects.

ThunderCat Technology’s Co-Founder and General Manager Keith McMeans commented on the award, “First and foremost we are proud of our team. We are particularly grateful to those early employees who took a lot of risk and believed in the vision and true potential of ThunderCat Technology. We are honored and humbled to be included in this list of high growth companies from a variety of industries. They are all impressive leaders who are helping create jobs and value in these difficult economic times.”
