Brett Beveridge in “U.S. Entrepreneurs’ Rise to the Top”

Brett Beveridge was honored to participated in the academic study, “U.S. Entrepreneur’s Rise to the Top,” being study being conducted by social scientists at Florida International University (FIU)  in conjunction with FIU’s Center for leadership, Center for entrepreneurship, and funded by the Kauffman Foundation.

Under the direction of lead researcher Dr. Eaton, the study examines the challenges, behaviors, and characteristics of a sample of established male and female entrepreneurs across the U.S. The essence of the survey is to determine the underlying causes for differences in business size and expansion.

The results of the study are projected to give insight into understanding the different paths and the stumbling blocks of entrepreneurs as well as their various approaches to business health and growth. The key insights gathered will be useful for businesses who want to expand their businesses by presenting them with solutions these successful entrepreneurs have used in their organizations.

Mobile Insight Recognized in the Red Herring

June 23, 2011

Red Herring announced its Top 100 award in recognition of the leading private companies from North America, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries. Mobile Insight has been honored as one of the companies recognized on this list.

Red Herring’s Top 100 North America list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Mobile Insight embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Mobile Insight should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.
