SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/23/14 -- Phizzle, the fan-centric marketing automation technology company, announced today that it has been named one of "America's Most Promising Companies" by Forbes Magazine, a list of the 100 privately held, high-growth companies.

One metric never says it all. For the Most Promising list, Forbes strove for a holistic gauge of young, privately-held companies, trying to pin down their trajectories by looking at a slew of variables. Over the course of six months, Forbes reviewed thousands of applications. The final assessment is based on growth (both in sales and hiring), quality of management team and investors, margins, market size and key partnerships. Forbes relied on New York-based data firm CB Insights to mine millions of online documents and extract such company-specific data as hiring, customer wins, partner signings, product sentiment and financing information. That information is automatically married with industry data to score each company. The Forbes team further evaluated the companies according to strength of management teams, quality of investors, past growth, product strength and market potential to produce a final list and rankings.
