CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - November 03, 2016) - FourKites was recently recognized as one of the "Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America" by Entrepreneur magazine's Entrepreneur 360™ List, the most comprehensive analysis of private companies in America. Based on this study forged by Entrepreneur, FourKites is recognized as a well-rounded company that has mastered a balance of impact, innovation, growth and leadership.
"I'm very proud of the value that we're adding to our customer base. We're honored to be recognized by Entrepreneur," said FourKites CEO Mathew Elenjickal.
"Our annual evaluation offers a 360-degree analysis of the current private-business landscape," explains Lisa Murray, Chief Insights Officer of Entrepreneur Media, Inc. "Top performers are determined by how well-rounded they are in these four key operative areas. Entrepreneurship is a complex endeavor -- this listing recognizes those who have mastered the challenge and are thriving this year."
FourKites' real-time tracking platform currently connects over 2.5 million trucks in North America and, with its recent $13 million in Series A funding, is expanding to cover more transportation modes in more countries. Large-scale market impact paired with massive growth, among other successes, led to FourKites receiving a Chicago Innovation Award in October.
Honorees were identified based on the results from a comprehensive study of independently-owned companies, using a proprietary algorithm and other advanced analytics. The algorithm was built on a balanced scorecard designed to measure four metrics reflecting major pillars of entrepreneurship-innovation, growth, leadership and impact.
