Beyond Spots & Dots Named One of the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” by Entrepreneur Magazine

Wednesday, October 21, 2015


Beyond Spots & Dots has been honored by Entrepreneur magazine as one of the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” in the inaugural Entrepreneur360™ Performance Index (E360), the most comprehensive analysis of private companies in America. This recognition is a result of Beyond Spots & Dots’ innovative thinking and sustained growth.

The E360 Performance Index identified the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” on the basis of growth, resilience and overall value they bring to their industries. Melanie Querry, president and founder of Beyond Spots & Dots said, “We feel privileged to be named as one of the Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America. We’re changing the way companies view and develop advertising, creative and digital solutions. This recognition is both an honor for the company, and a testament to the hard work of all of our dedicated team members.”

Researchers compiled the 2015 E360 Performance Index with data from privately-held U.S. companies, looking at what drives growth, challenges faced, goal setting and more. The study revealed six groups of companies—Best Practicers, Data Champions, Classics, Forward Thinkers, Contrarians and Controllers—who excel at creating superior value, building an adaptive learning culture and who focus on geographic expansion. Beyond Spots & Dots has been named as a Controller for its close customer relationships and ability to predict and act on customer needs.

“The companies identified in the E360 Index are sustained growers…and have proven adept at navigating the changing challenges of their marketplace to win new business and grow their output capacity year after year,” says Gary Kunkle, senior research fellow at the Business Dynamics Research Consortium and E360 Performance Index research partner.
