Englewood, CO (December 1, 2011) – Latisys, a leading national provider of IT outsourcing solutions from colocation to cloud, today announced it has been named by Forbes as one of America’s most promising companies.
Forbes‘ list of America’s Most Promising Companies features 100 privately held up-and-comers with compelling business models, strong management teams, notable customers, strategic partners and precious investment capital. Latisys ranked 23rd on the list, recognized for the firm’s leadership team and business model that has driven strategic growth and expansion.

“The companies on this list are leading the way across all industries,” said Pete Stevenson, CEO of Latisys. “It is a tremendous honor to be included in this prestigious ranking and we thank Forbes for recognizing the collective efforts and support of Latisys’ employees, investors and—most importantly—our customers.”
With large, state-of-the-art data centers and cloud services platforms in Northern Virginia, Chicago, Denver and Irvine, California, Latisys delivers solutions across all U.S. time zones – including gateways into Asia Pacific and Europe – providing unmatched scalability and multi-site redundancy to enterprise customers whether they want to off-premise, off-load, optimize or ‘on-demand’ their IT infrastructure. “Sizing up younger, privately held companies is hard: Their fortunes can change very quickly and there’s a dearth of public data,” says Forbes Executive Editor Brett Nelson. “We took a more comprehensive approach to evaluate their health and potential.”
To sharpen its search, Forbes teamed up with CB Insights, a Manhattan-based data firm that tracks investment in high-growth private companies. With $650,000 in grants from the National Science Foundation, CB has developed complex software called Mosaic that mines myriad online sources (from press releases and social networks to job boards and court filings) to come up with one, algorithmically derived score that measures a private company’s health. Forbes married Mosaic’s data-crunching with old-fashioned reporting to assemble a list of rising stars with bright growth prospects.
