Scottsdale, Arizona - October 25, 2016
Nextiva (www.nextiva.com), an industry-leading cloud communications company, today announced that it was recently recognized as one of the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” by Entrepreneur Magazine’s Entrepreneur 360™ List, the most comprehensive analysis of private companies in America. Based on this study forged by Entrepreneur, Nextiva is recognized as a well-rounded company that has mastered a balance of impact, innovation, growth and leadership.
Honorees were identified based on the results from a comprehensive study of independently-owned companies, using a proprietary algorithm and other advanced analytics. The algorithm was built on a balanced scorecard designed to measure four metrics reflecting major pillars of entrepreneurship—innovation, growth, leadership and impact.
“Our annual evaluation offers a 360-degree analysis of the current private-business landscape,” explains Lisa Murray, Chief Insights Officer of Entrepreneur Media, Inc. “Top performers are determined by how well-rounded they are in these four key operative areas. Entrepreneurship is a complex endeavor—this listing recognizes those who have mastered the challenge and are thriving this year.”
In just eight years, Nextiva has grown to become one of the largest privately-held communications companies in the United States. The company was founded by tech entrepreneur Tomas Gorny, who currently serves as chief executive officer, and is completely self-funded. Under Gorny’s expert leadership, Nextiva has grown to employ more than 500 talented individuals and currently serves over 150,000 business customers throughout the United States. In addition to rapid growth, the company is on a mission to eliminate the fragmented communications experience that plagues today’s businesses, and instead deliver a seamless experience that promotes productivity, efficiency, and growth.
"It is an honor to be recognized by Entrepreneur as one of the best privately-held companies in America,” says Yaniv Masjedi, Nextiva’s Vice President of Marketing. “We have always viewed being privately-held as one of our greatest advantages. It allows us to be innovative, agile, and focus solely on our customers’ wants and needs.”
