Hot Companies I’m Keeping an Eye On!
Working online has its advantages. One of them is you are often able to keep current with business trends. Here are a few companies yours truly stumbled upon while researching assignments:
This is a cosmetic company born in New York, New York and headquartered in Los Angeles, California. Some sources consider this to be “a super cool company”. It was founded by Doe Deere, legally known as Xenia Vorotova, who is also the CEO and owner. It launched in October of 2008. Deere started with nothing more than a line of several brushes, glitters, eyeshadows and a primer. She was soon expanding the line to include her distinct Unicorn Lipsticks and more.
On their website this company, which was praised by Inc. com, states that they work to bring businesses and data analysts together. They are headquartered in Santa Cruz, California. This data-driven company was founded by Lloyd Tabb and Ben Porterfield in February 2012. Those currently owning stock in Looker report that the company is on the fast track and doing “extremely well.”
DoorDash, Instacart and Uber get most of the attention when it comes to what some refer to as “last-mile delivery of goods.” Nevertheless, Postmates, headquartered in San Francisco, California, is said to be rapidly expanding. Recently leaked financial records confirm this fact. Another favorite hot company of Inc. com, the business was co-founded by Sam Street, Sean Plaice and Bastian Lehmann in 2011. Postmates continues to grow thanks to the efforts of a passionate group of designers, engineers, growth and operations specialists.
This is another San Francisco, California-based business. They focus on simplifying today’s confusing customer-communication challenge that numerous web-based businesses struggle. Although this is a significantly-sized market, Inc. com reports that Intercom is doing well in terms of both service and sales. Founded in 2011, their product line includes such products and services as feedback, live chat, marketing and support.
Forbes considers Syntel to be both a hot company and one of the “Top Ten” companies in terms of hiring too. Headquartered in Troy, Michigan, they are a “multinational provider” of business and integrated technology services. Syntel was founded in 1980 by the chairman of the board, majority stockholder and ex-CEO Bharat Desai and his wife Neerja Sethi. The company is also a certified minority-owned business or MBE.
