On a daily basis, the Lead411 research team scours through at least 600 press releases and business articles including venture capital financings, company launches, office openings, new customer press releases, etc. This information has given insight to which are the fastest growing technology companies in U.S. Their "Hot List" awards have been created to recognize these fast growing companies. This particular list originally started with over 460 companies and it has been narrowed down to the top 23.
"This is our 3rd Annual Pennsylvania award. We are pleased with the recognition the Award has received over the past few years," said Tom Blue, CEO of Lead411, "and we are very proud of the respected list of companies for the 2012 winners."
How the List Was Chosen
First, all companies must be in either the Software, Wireless, Hardware, Internet, or Media industry, a privately held organization, and be within Pennsylvania. 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.
