The “Hottest Companies” awards have been created to recognize the fastest growing companies in different geographic regions. This particular list originally started with more than 2,400 companies and was narrowed down to the top 91. Companies considered for the “Hottest Companies in the Southeast” award had to be in the software, wireless, Internet or media industries; privately held, and based in Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas or Louisiana. In addition, each company must have met one or more of the following criteria: Achieved at least a 100 percent increase in revenues over the past three years; received more than $1 million in funding in the past two years; or showed at least a 100 percent increase in traffic to the company’s Web site in the past 12 months, and more than 1 million unique visitors a month.
With over 10,000 paying subscribers and 1 million unique visitors WorthPoint made the grade on several of these criteria and is poised for good growth. Congrats to CEO Will Seippel and the entire Worthpoint team.
