How can one tell whether a business is on a sure, one-way road to success? Though predicting how a company will fare out in the long run is somewhat tricky, there are a few indicators we can assess in order to determine whether a business has a long-term sustainability or not.
Today, we would like to present you with a list we have compiled of the 20 most promising companies in America, based on the analysis published by Forbes Magazine in early January 2014. The experts at Forbes took several indicators into account, such as sales and personnel growth, management team, quality of investors, key partnerships, and market size. While these indicators can offer a rather accurate view of how each company is performing, predicting whether the following businesses will be the major corporations of tomorrow is somewhat of a gamble. Nonetheless, we feel confident that the following companies will be worth watching in 2014.
Curious to see which 2014’s most promising companies are? Let’s take a look at the countdown.
Note: the countdown takes into account only privately-held companies, with revenues under $250 million, operating within US territory.
