Lead411 Opens 2013 With the Hottest Companies in the Southern California Awards

2013 is off to a blazing start with the release of Lead411‘s list of  Hottest Companies in the Southern California awardees. The laudable selection of innovative technology companies are the end-result of the Lead411 team’s industrious daily scouring of more than 600 press releases, company launches, business articles, and more.

This particular list started with an extensive selection of more than 1621, and was later whittled down to the best 49 companies.  Tom Blue, Lead411 CEO has this to say about the launch of the Hottest Companies list in the region:  “We are very proud of the momentum and recognition our Hot Awards have gained in the past 4 years. The 2013 list showcases companies with outstanding performance in their fields, who have all earned the right to be called a Southern California Hot Company.”

In order for a company to qualify, it must be in the Southern California region, and is part of the Software, Wireless, Internet, Hardware, or Media industries. In addition, it should also either have a 100% increase in revenues or have received more than $1M in funding in the past two years.

Luxtera, Inc., GumGum, and PixelFish made it to the list of Hottest Companies in the Southern California. Want to know the others who did? You can find the complete list and more info here.
