About Forbes 100 Most Promising Companies:

The Forbes' ranking is developed through an in-depth analysis of many factors among young, privately held companies. These factors include growth (both in sales and hiring), quality of management team and investors, margins, market size and key partnerships. These elements are married with industry data such as competition, growth rate and merger activity to score each company. Then a team at Forbes individually debates the merits and blemishes of each company, evaluating the strength of management teams, quality of investors, past growth, product strength and market potential.
