Lead411 ‘New York City Hot 125’

Chris Sheldrake

It’s not just us that recognises EnQii as a market leader as this week Lead411 announced its ‘New York City Hot 125’ recognising the hottest technology companies in New York City.

Congratulations must go to both EnQii and YCD Multimedia who were both in the list.

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 companies in U.S and their ‘Hot List’ awards have been created to recognise these fast growing companies – this particular list was originally started with over 750 companies and was narrowed down to the top 125.

Tom Blue, CEO of Lead41 told us “We are very proud of these awards. We have been tracking fast-moving companies for our customers for the past 10 years and we felt it was important to recognize these growing brands publicly.”

How the List Was Chosen

First, all companies must by in either the Software, Wireless, Internet, or Media industry, have less than $100M in yearly revenues, and be within the New York City metropolitan area. From there, each company must meet one or more of the following requirements;

  • 100% increase in revenues over the past 3 years.
  • $5M+ in funding in the past 2 years.
  • 2X traffic gains to their website in the past 12 months AND over 1M unique visitors a month.
