Nice article on up and coming companies in the United States.
Three engineers with a dream and an algorithm started a company that could change the world–but they are in Tennessee, not Silicon Valley, and they care about manufacturing, not social media. This is just the shiniest gem we turned up in our hunt for America’s most promising young companies. Which of these 20 sprouts will bloom into the next Microsoft? General Electric? Google? And what, exactly, makes their fortunes burn so bright? The answers aren’t just the province of professional investors and the employees lucky enough to get in on the ground floor; indeed, they run to the very churning, molten center of our economy–and our society. That’s why Forbes went hunting for small, dynamic companies with the kind of growth prospects that make venture capitalists salivate. The kind of companies that, with enough focus, sweat, courage and capital, have the potential to roil their competitive landscapes. The kind of companies worthy of a place on Forbes’ new list of America’s Most Promising Companies. – From Forbes
