Every year Always On puts together a list that "recognizes companies with game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. " This year they've included WordStream on the list.
As a young company, being included on these sorts of lists is validating for a number of reasons, but most notably we're impressed by:
- The Company We Keep - There are some very, very smart companies on this list solving some incredibly challenging problems. Included in the list is a series of fellow Sigma Partners backed companies like Nasuni, oDesk, Responsys, and Zetta.
- The Process - Always On has a very discerning process for the selection of this list, which always makes inclusion more gratifying.
- Consistent Validation - Winning multiple awards that attempt to say the same thing about your company in close proximity (like this one and the MITX promise award that WordStream also took home) offers an extra layer of validation that makes the statement the award is making.
Many thanks to the folks at Always On for taking the time to compile this list, and congrats to the other winners!
