The Austin Emerging 100 is a list of the top 100 emerging technology companies in Austin, Texas according to the editors of AustinStartup, a news blog that covers technology in Austin. Technology includes not just hardware and software, but cleantech, biotech, and nanotech. The list is in alphabetical order, and is meant to serve as an index to the top emerging companies, and not necessarily a ranking of their relative worth or value. The Austin Emerging 100 will be updated on a periodic basis.
The criteria for consideration includes companies that are headquartered in Austin, growing and hiring, attracting capital, typically 5 years old or less, and relevant in their market. Companies that have been acquired by other companies or are publicly traded are no longer considered emerging.
If you have a company to nominate that is not on the list, but should be considered, please send an email to editor @AustinStartup.com.
