Fast Company released their list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2015 and the list included two VegasTechFund investments.
AnyPerk was recognized for bringing Facebook-style benefits to the masses.
“Some companies have free on-site haircuts and nap pods. For everyone else, there’s AnyPerk,” the feature in Fast Company reads. “The startup is essentially an outsourced HR benefit ­program: For $10 per employee per month (or less, depending on the scale), AnyPerk connects com­panies with goodies its workers want. In only three years, AnyPerk has scored more than 2,500 clients—including ­Pinterest and Cushman & ­Wakefield. ­Revenue grew five times between 2013 and 2014.”
General Assembly was recognized for graduating to next-gen educator.
“After expanding its reach from nine cities in 2013 to 13 in 2014, General Assembly’s annual class hours have shot up from 117,012 to 260,176,” the feature in Fast Company reads. “The organization already has more than 10,000 alumni, and 90% of them have found a job within three months of completing their courses—and 99% of grads have secured employment within a year.”
