Two Arkansas Companies Named Industry Leaders by Entrepreneur Magazine


by Tyler Hale

Two Arkansas companies have been selected for Entrepreneur magazine’s Entrepreneur 360 list. These 360 companies, according to Entrepreneur, are “mastering the art and science of growing a business.”

According to Entrepreneur, the list is designed to show how the “real leaders among entrepreneurs” in the United States are.

The two Arkansas companies named to the list are RevUnit and Team SI. Based in Bentonville, RevUnit is a digital strategy and product studio that specializes in employee-facing software. Team SI, based in Little Rock, is a marketing firm that designs “unique bran experiences…using digital and social media platforms.”

RevUnit placed in the top 40 companies on the list, coming it at #34. This is the highest Arkansas ranking on the list since its inception.

This isn’t the first year RevUnit has made it onto Entrepreneur’s list. In 2018, the company was #34 on the list and was #159 in 2017.

“We’re also proud to continue to represent Arkansas as a strong technology hub. The talent to build a world-class technology business can be found in the state of Arkansas, and we’re proud to be an example of that,” RevUnit co-founder Michael Paladino told Arkansas Money & Politics.

Meanwhile, Team SI was ranked #185 on the 2019 list.  Team SI has also previously made the Entrepreneur 360 list. While the Little Rock company missed the cut in 2018, they were named #314 on the list for 2017.

Since 2017, the magazine has been inviting companies around the United States to apply to be named to the Entrepreneur 360 list. Once companies apply, the magazine evaluates each company on more than 50 data points that fit into five main pillars: revenue and customers, management efficiency, innovation, financial evaluation, and business evaluation.

Arkansas Money & Politics has reached out to the companies for comment.
