Entrepreneur360 Performance Index is Groundbreaking, Multi-Factor Study and The Most Comprehensive Analysis Of Private Companies.

ThunderCat Technology, a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) that delivers technology services and solutions to the federal government, was recently recognized as one of the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” by Entrepreneur magazine’s Entrepreneur360™ Performance Index, a premier study delivering the most comprehensive analysis of private companies in America. Based on this study forged by Entrepreneur, ThunderCat is recognized as a company that exemplifies growth, not just in top and bottom line, but in sustainability and ability to achieve lasting success.

“We are honored and excited to be included on this inaugural list of the top entrepreneurial companies.  Like many small business owners I have been turning to Entrepreneur for years for the most insightful articles and actionable insights.  So, to be selected and recognized by these experts is truly humbling.  Their advanced analytics and research paint a holistic view of businesses that go beyond capturing revenue and growth to look at the characteristics, hard work, and causes of that success, not just the results themselves,” said Tom Deierlein, CEO of ThunderCat Technology.

“Those honored have identified a problem, come up with a unique solution, and bravely built their enterprises around it,” says Ryan Shea, president of Entrepreneur Media. “They’ve accomplished new ways of producing sustainable growth and are an inspiration to others who want to fulfill their own entrepreneurial goals.”

Through in-depth surveys, the team of editors and researchers behind the E360 Performance Index collected more than 250 pieces of data from hundreds of participating U.S. based companies, focusing on growth drivers and challenges, goal setting, resource allocations, and reward systems. The analysis uncovered a subset of companies including ThunderCat Technology, whose continued success is largely based on superior value creation for their customers, building an adaptive learning culture, and aggressive geographic expansion—making them the most dynamic firms in America today.

According to research conducted by the Business Dynamics Research Consortium (BDRC), less than one percent of U.S. businesses expanded capacity three or more years out of the past five.  On average, they grew by 41% over the period whereas all other surviving companies lost an average of 4%. Based on their analysis of 19.1 million for-profit US businesses, sustained growers are statistically more likely to survive and continue to grow over the next five years than any other group of businesses in the economy.

“The companies identified in the E360 Index are sustained growers, and based on our research, have proven adept at navigating the changing challenges of their marketplace to win new business and grow their output capacity year after year,” says Gary Kunkle, senior research fellow at the Business Dynamics Research Consortium and research partner of the E360 Performance Index.
