2nd Annual List Recognizes 147 Private Companies that Put Purpose Before Profit

Tenshey, Inc. a tech-enabled startup on a mission to advance diversity and leadership development through executive coaching, has been named in the Inc. 2021 Best in Business list.

Tenshey, Inc. has been awarded the Gold medal in the On the Rise: 0-4 years in business category on the Inc. 2021 Best in Business list. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have gone above and beyond to make a positive impact.

The list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine (on newsstands December 14), recognizes small- and medium-size privately held American businesses that have had an outstanding influence on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole.

“As a young company, we’re honored to be included on the Inc. 2021 Best in Business List. Our innovative sponsorship programs and co-creation model with enterprises have been very important to our mission to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion together. While there is more work to be done, we’re excited about all the progress made to accelerate the career growth of women and underrepresented minority talent," says Maggie Chan Jones, CEO of Tenshey, Inc.

Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., says, “What began for us during the pandemic as an effort to showcase companies that were helping the community has grown into a recognition of social, environmental, and economic impact. The companies on this year’s list are changemakers with heart – and they’re pouring the best of their business into the people and communities around them.”

Rather than relying on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in more than 49 different industries – from finance to software to engineering to fashion, and more – and in age-based and revenue-based categories. The applicant pool was extremely competitive, with around 2,700 entries and an acceptance rate in the low single digits – a huge success for these honors in the list’s second year. Honorees for gold, silver, bronze, and general excellence across industries and categories are featured online at inc.com/best-in-business.
