Entrepreneur Magazine has named Aqua-Yield to its 2017 Entrepreneurial 360 List. Aqua-Yield is the only Utah agricultural-based company to appear on the nationwide list and comes in at an impressive #100 overall.
"We are absolutely thrilled and honored to be named on this list," says Aqua-Yield CEO and co-founder Clark Bell. "The true spirit of entrepreneurism runs through our bloodlines and was the basis for us taking the initial idea that nanotechnology could be a disrupting force in agriculture around the world. From our investors, to our board and through every Aqua-Yield employee, the true idea of entrepreneurism is and will always be a basis for our growth and commitment to our technology and every one of Aqua-Yield's products."
Honorees were identified based on the results from a comprehensive study of independently-owned companies, using a proprietary algorithm and other advanced analytics. The algorithm was built on a balanced scorecard, designed to measure the judged areas.
Companies on The Entrepreneur 360 List exemplify growth, not just in a bottom line, but in the ability to create a superior value for their customers, build adaptive learning cultures, and to drive innovation in their marketplace.
"Our evaluation offers a 360-degree analysis of the current private-business landscape," says Lisa Murray, Chief Insights Officer of Entrepreneur Media, Inc. "Top performers are determined by how well-rounded they are in four key areas: impact, innovation, growth and leadership. Entrepreneurship is a complex endeavor — this listing recognizes those who have mastered the challenge and are thriving this year."
