Inc.’s Best-Led Companies is a new index of management excellence across the middle market. These 250 companies are the very strongest U.S. firms with revenue of $50 million to $2 billion (or a valuation of $50 million to $10 billion), based on superlative accomplishments in four key areas: performance and value creation; market penetration and customer engagement; talent; and leadership team. We built a 14-point algorithm and analyzed approximately 1.3 million data points from more than 10,000 companies.
In aggregate, the 250 companies here created more than 540,000 jobs and generated more than $140 billion in annual revenue. This is the first Inc. recognition program to honor public as well as private companies. Algorithm by Inc. chief data scientist Arnobio Morelix, principal at Shango Labs. Data was provided by companies through an applications process and via a partnership with PitchBook (which includes data from Inc.’s sister company Morningstar).
Deadline Summer 2022, final dates to be determined soon.
There is no application fee.
