“who are the best startups in NYC?”….I get this question a lot.
It is very hard to quantify an answer, usually is based on some anecdotes but rarely is it a data driven answer. One way to quantify this is by utilizing information via Glassdoor If a company is highly ranked on Glassdoor, it should indicate that the employees overall are happy campers. If you have happy employees, there is a strong likelihood that customers are happy, which usually means $$$. I have not researched whether or not, there is a strong correlation between happy employees and company success, but intuitively I think it makes sense, if you disagree, please let me know.
In any case, here are my top 10 startups in NYC, would love to get your thoughts.
In no particular order:
- CB Insights
- Hightower (now VTS)
These companies met ALL of the parameters below, again the data is from Glassdoor:
- HQ’d in NYC
- At least 20 reviews provided by current/previous employees
- At least a score of 4.7 (out of 5)
