InsightSquared Voted “2014 Hottest Boston Company”

Recognized by Lead411 as One of the Fastest Growing Tech Companies in the Greater Boston Area

CAMBRIDGE, MA – July 15, 2014 – InsightSquared, the award-winning provider of business analytics software for small and midsize companies, was recently recognized by Lead411 as one of the fastest growing technology companies in the Boston area in the recent release of the “Hottest Companies in Boston” award.

For over 13 years, Lead411’s technology and research team scours the web daily to find information about fast growing companies.  Each day they look at press releases and news stories like venture financings, company launches, hiring plans, etc.  This has given Lead411 insight on the hottest companies in the US and the ability to create such an extensive award program.

This year, the list originally started with over 1,400 companies and was narrowed down to the top 62.  “Our 2014 award winners might be our best selection ever,” said Tom Blue, CEO of Lead411. “It seems like there is no better time to be a tech entrepreneur. There are so many startups succeeding right now and it is reflected in these awards.  We expect to see large growth and ‘big things’ from this group.”

All of the companies who made the list must be in either the Software, Wireless, Internet, Hardware, or Media Industry, and be a privately held organization within the Boston Region.  From there, each company must additionally meet one or more of the following requirements: 100% increase in revenues over the past two years or over $3M in funding in the past two years.

Within the past year alone InsightSquared experienced exponential growth with annual sales growing 20x for its Salesforce analytics product.  InsightSquared also relocated to a new office that is triple the size of their past location to accommodate the rapidly growing number of new employees.   “We are honored to receive this award,” said Fred Shilmover, CEO of InsightSquared.  “Our reputation for powerfully simple and affordable business analytics is a huge part of this growth.  However, none of it would be possible without our incredible employees, customers, and partners within the Salesforce community.”
