Forbes released its list of America's 100 most promising companies, which includes familiar names such as HubSpot, Box, Acquia and Domo.
Cloud-based storage and collaboration provider Box, which we've covered quite a bit this year, ranked number 18 with an 810% revenue increase between 2008 and 2010.
Acquia, the company that installs and supports the Drupal open source CMS, appears at number 41 on the list. Last month Acquia announced Acquia U to provide Drupal training and job placement. In response to the Forbes list, Tom Erickson, CEO of Acquia, said:
We couldn't be more thrilled to receive this accolade which reflects the strong culture we have built at Acquia with the support of the entire Drupal Community. In many ways, this is a shared award with the passion and commitment this group brings to Drupal. It is truly changing the world and we are honored to be recognized for our contribution."
Domo, the new business intelligence company launched earlier this year, came in at number 73. Omniture founder and CEO Josh James, who launched Domo, told the Deseret News:
We've identified a huge market in business intelligence, and we are fortunate to have the right people behind us as investors, board members and employees. We are thrilled to be recognized in this group of notable up-and-comers and even more excited to get out there and start exploiting this opportunity."
