Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2014
Lead411 (http://www.lead411.com) releases its 5th Annual “Hottest Southern California Companies” list for 2014.
For over 13 years, Lead411’s technology and research team scours the web daily to find information about fast growing companies. Each day they are looking at press releases and news stories like venture financings, company launches, hiring plans, etc. This has given Lead411 insight on the hottest companies in the US, hence the awards.
Over the past five years the awards have received increasingly more recognition and respectability. This is primarily due to the fact that some very successful startups were included in the earlier lists. Previous winners like Yammer, GlassDoor, Hubspot, Eventbrite and Marketo promoted their inclusion on their sites, blogs and social outlets.
About the Awardees:
First, all companies must be in either the Software, Wireless, Hardware, Internet, or Media industry, a privately held organization, and be within Southern California. From there, each company must meet one or more of the following requirements;
100% increase in revenues over the past 2 years OR $1M+ in funding in the past 2 years.
This particular list originally started with over 1605 companies and it has been narrowed down to the top 64.
“Our 2014 award winners might be our best selection ever,” said Tom Blue, CEO of Lead411. “It seems like there is no better time to be a tech entrepreneur. There are so many startups succeeding right now and it is reflected in these awards.”
