  • Company Growth: Comprehensive evaluations of website traffic, headcount growth rates, and job openings.

Companies considered in the evaluation must be in the U.S., founded between the years 2013 and 2020, employing at least 50 employees, and exhibiting a startup structure. The final list recognizes the top 500 companies based on the analysis of over 7 million data points with over 11,000 companies.
