Skillz Named to the 2018 Entrepreneur 360 List

We are honored to be named to this year’s Entrepreneur 360 list, an annual award which recognizes the best privately-owned companies in America! According to Entrepreneur, the companies on this list represent the most elite of the entrepreneurial experience who have mastered the art and science of growing a business.

 
Each company being considered for the Entrepreneur 360 list is evaluated based on four metrics: impact, innovation, growth, and leadership. Past honorees have included Anaplan (a cloud computing platform), Touch of Modern (an online shopping destination for men), Madwire (a digital marketing service), and Power Home Remodeling (which provides energy-saving and environmentally friendly remodeling solutions to residents).

The selection committee scrutinizes companies based on not only quantitative data, like revenue, headcount, and income, but also on qualitative metrics. Our commitment to initiatives like the ParityPledge and our partnership with organizations like Susan G. Komen have also contributed to our company’s growth and positive impact on the eSports space and larger technology industry!

The 2018 list features a wide variety of businesses, from advertising agencies like Abstrakt Marketing Group to engineering services like Torch Technologies. Skillz is the only gaming company featured on the list, and in the top three of companies headquartered in San Francisco!
