We started Growjo because we wanted to recognize companies that were truly dedicated toward growth. Companies that were poised to making moves in their respective industries. Companies that were growing through multiple growth identifiers that we have seen when using sales intelligence platforms like Lead411. These indicators came from a number of different sources including; hiring trends, recent funding, executive hires, and more.
As we started to look into this data and began to understand the growth trends associated, we thought we could take it one step further. Growjo is intended to identify growing companies sure, but what we found out when devising our algorithm was that Growjo could actually identify companies that were poised for ongoing and future growth as well. Our algorithm isn’t about just a few indicators like revenue or total employees, it’s about finding trends in multiple data points, predicting growth and presenting that data in a useful and consumable way....

There are other B2B lists out there, inc 5000 and forbes 500 come to mind, and companies can certainly apply for these types of recognition lists, but Growjo is different. No submissions required, and we don’t include companies that are over 1000 employees already. (The recognition of companies that are on their way up toward over 1000 employees seemed more appealing then highlighting the Microsoft’s and Exxon Mobil’s of the world.) We also offer a downloadable .csv file of the companies free of charge, and we recognize each company with unique badges they can utilize on their website, scripted social sharing options and PR templates so it is extremely easy to promote your rank. We want to get the word out that Growjo is a unique way to highlight companies that are growing and poised for future growth.
