Leader in Mobile App Development Ranked on List of High-Growth, Privately Held U.S. Companies

Forbes' America's Most Promising Companies List

Bottle Rocket, an award-winning mobile solutions provider, has been recognized by Forbes as one of “America’s Most Promising Companies.” Bottle Rocket is ranked at No. 61 on Forbes’ annual list of 100 privately held, high-growth companies with bright futures.

“We are honored to be recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Most Promising Companies,” said Calvin Carter, founder and president of Bottle Rocket. “This recognition, compiled by a very comprehensive methodology, confirms our position as the leading provider of the highest quality mobile solutions for the world’s most discrimination brands.”

In addition to being named a Most Promising Company, Bottle Rocket also was recently recognized with two Variety Entertainment App Awards, including Entertainment App Developer of the Year, as well as the fourth induction of an app into Apple’s prestigious App Store Hall of Fame.

Forbes methodology to derive the Most Promising list involves a holistic gauge of young, privately-held companies by examining multiple variables. Over the course of six months, FORBES reviews thousands of applications. The final assessment is based on growth (both in sales and hiring), quality of management team and investors, margins, market size and key partnerships. FORBES also turns to CB Insights, a Manhattan-based data research firm that specializes in assessing private companies, to refine the search. Using their MOSAIC software, 45,000 sources are scanned to measure applicant companies’ health. A new distribution deal, for example, marks a positive signal, while the loss of an executive is a negative. MOSAIC gathers those myriad signals into a final score that FORBES uses as an initial guide in producing the list. After verifying sales numbers, speaking with each company and debating their merits and blemishes, FORBES produces a final ranking.
