This year, the tradition of recognizing the most remarkably innovative companies continues, as Lead411 begins the year with the Hottest Companies in Southern California Awards.
Tom Blue, Lead411‘s CEO, says this of 2012′s awards, “This is our 3rd Annual Southern California award. We are pleased with the recognition the Award has received over the past few years, and we are very proud of the respected list of companies for the 2012 winners.”
Every day, Lead411′s hardworking team goes through over 600 company launches, press releases, and business articles, among other documents to determine the fastest-growing companies in a certain region.
For the Hottest Companies in Southern California Awards, the company/organization must be privately-held, and based in Southern California. In addition it must also be part of either the Media, Software, Hardware, Internet, or Wireless industries.
Southern California is definitely on a roll this 2012, as this list started with more than 1800 impressive companies, and was later on narrowed down to the best 57.
Those that were included in the Hottest Companies in Southern California Awards needed to have either 100% increase in revenues or more than $3 million in funding over the past two years.
