Here we are! With the much awaited annual si100 issue. This is the 13th year we are hailing and saluting the continuing rise and glory of the Indian entrepreneurs in high-tech industry in U.S. In the past 13 years we have seen the industry evolving, growing and recouping the hunches of recessions that marred the landscape. But nothing has stopped the Indian entrepreneur from making it big. From the era of the mainframes to computers to the era of smart phones and tablets, they left their mark everywhere. From the times of client servers to web based to the cloud, foot prints are obvious and history is incomplete without them.
This year also we have carefully listed those companies which display the characteristics of long-term visibility, sustained growth, business focus, profitability and customer and employee value-creation. If one is giving a new dimension to online advertising, another is optimizing the WAN through the cloud and the other has a great market share in the Value added Services market. While some have chosen Internet to innovate and experiment, others by their sheer customer focus and engagement models pleased the billion dollar companies.
We salute each and every one of these entrepreneurs for their leadership, and particularly for their unrelenting dedication in building their companies. Each and every entrepreneur on this list demonstrate the utmost passion for building lasting enterprises and exudes confidence that they will succeed in tackling the current economic conditions.
A distinguished panel comprising of accomplished Indian CEO’s & CIO’s of public companies, VC’s, analysts, founders of other VC funded companies including siliconindia editorial board decided on the top 100 companies.We congratulate the 100 finalists for achieving this vote of respect from industry leaders and wish each and every one of them a great future.
