Blast PR is pleased to announce two clients who made the Forbes Most Promising Companies List 2013.

For the Most Promising list, Forbes strove for a holistic gauge of young, privately-held companies, trying to pin down their trajectories by looking at a slew of variables. Over the course of six months Forbes reviewed thousands of applications. The final assessment is based on growth (both in sales and hiring), quality of management team and investors, margins, market size and key partnerships. Forbes turned to CB Insights, a Manhattan-based data research firm that specializes in assessing private companies, to refine the search. Their Mosaic software scans 45,000 sources to measure a company’s health. After verifying sales numbers, speaking with each company and debating their merits and blemishes, Forbes produces a final ranking.

#71 Media6Degrees: A technology company that helps brands target Web users most likely to buy their products. CVS, Microsoft and AT&T are customers. CEO Tom Phillips previously served as director of search and analytics at Google.

#39 Mixpo: Runs online software that converts and distributes video across mobile, tablet and desktop formats. Their notable clients include Comcast, Disney, Ford, NBC and Univision! They are included in Forbes ‘Nifty Fifty’.

Check out the full list!

We congratulate them and are happy to share their success with the word! We also salute the IAB, which saw 10 Members included on the list (Media6 and Mixpo amongst them). Way to go!
