Living, the only global technology and lifelong learning solution to
revolutionize an aging population’s ability to connect and create
change, today announced it has been named to Inc. Magazine’s exclusive
list of the 5,000 fastest growing private companies in the United
States. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most
important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
The company ranked 1693 as a result of achieving significant customer
and revenue growth between 2010 and 2013 of 240%
“This Inc. 5000 recognition is validation of our success inspiring an
aging population to connect, contribute and lead healthier lives," said
Sarah Hoit, CEO and Founder at Connected Living. "We gain far more than
we give by having the wisdom, voice, advice and powerful contribution of
the greatest generation.”
The uniqueness of the Connected Living solution is its integrated C3
Engine™ The C3 Engine is comprised of the Connected Living Network,
cloud based technology to tie senior communities, home and mobile health
together; the Connected Living University, providing content and
programming to deliver life long learning; and Connected Living
Consulting, to speed technology adoption and community development.
Together these capabilities enable an aging population to contribute and
live a healthier life.
"What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety
of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting
how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief
Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far
fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago.
But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American

The 2014 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when
comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and
generating revenue by March 31, 2010. They had to be U.S.-based,
privately held, for profit, and independent--not subsidiaries or
divisions of other companies--as of December 31, 2013. (Since then, a
number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The
minimum revenue required for 2010 is $100,000; the minimum for 2013 is
$2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
