Much of the discussion about market disruption has focused on large, brand name businesses, but there is tremendous innovation taking place at companies that get little attentions. NextGen companies–chosen by a Selection Committee comprised of M&A, VC and advisory executives–are young businesses that offer cutting-edge software and services.
NextGen winners in mobile, social & collaboration, and BigData were announced earlier this year. NextGen winners in healthcare and financial services will be announced on a progressive basis throughout 2014.
