Eight Firms Headed by Indian American Entrepreneurs on Forbes' List

Source : INDIA WEST
Feb 3, 2014

Eight companies co-founded and headed by Indian American entrepreneurs are among Forbes magazine's 100 most promising companies in America, according to an annual ranking of high-growth, privately-held companies with under $250 million in annual revenues.

Forbes said "rocketship growth" is not the only factor that describes the 100 companies in its third annual “America's Most Promising Companies” list.

"To watch a management team crack open a ripe new market and hang on for dear life as top line explodes is still good fun," it said.

Among the 100 companies on the list, eight are co-founded or headed by young entrepreneurs of Indian-origin.

In the 27th spot is Maryland-based WeddingWire, which is a technology company serving the over $100 billion wedding, corporate and social events industry.

One of the co-founders of the $34 million revenue firm is Sonny Ganguly, an MBA from Harvard Business School where he also served as president of the Marketing Club.
