BigCommerce Named in Inc.’s First-Annual Best-Led Companies

Recognized for performance and value creation; market penetration and customer engagement; talent and leadership, BigCommerce is listed in first-ever roundup of companies that proved management excellence across the middle market

AUSTIN, Texas – November 2, 2021 – BigCommerce (Nasdaq: BIGC), a leading Open SaaS ecommerce platform for fast-growing and established brands, today announced it has been named to Inc. Magazine’s first annual Best-Led Companies list, an exciting 12-point measure of management excellence across the middle market. The select, data-driven list is comprised of the very strongest U.S. firms with revenue of $50 million to $2 billion and is Inc.’s first recognition list to honor both public and private companies.

“It’s an honor for BigCommerce to be recognized in Inc’s inaugural Best-Led Companies list for our leadership and management. This award would not be possible without our outstanding team members, who bring extraordinary to the world of ecommerce with dedication to the success of every one of our merchant customers,” said Brent Bellm, chief executive officer at BigCommerce. “We are among great company and congratulate the other highly successful businesses who share this recognition with us."

To be considered for the list, each company had to fill out an application answering questions about its performance, executive team and leadership. Applicants were then analyzed via an algorithm that identified the very best companies according to their leadership teams’ superlative accomplishments in four key areas: performance and value creation; market penetration and customer engagement; talent and leadership team.

To compile the list, Inc. evaluated private and public U.S.-based companies with a 2020 revenue of $50 million to $2 billion or a valuation of $50 million to $10 billion using a proprietary 12-point measure of management excellence generated with input from partners at Pitchbook and Shango Labs.

The final list recognizes 250 companies that are agile enough to maneuver but also big enough to have a broad impact. All 250 have a successful track record with leadership teams that spur solid performance, create value, penetrate markets, engage with customers and more.

“This inaugural list of companies represents the remarkable midsized companies, both public and private, often founder led, that are at the vanguard of reinventing American business,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. magazine. “With their leadership, all businesses will benefit from an exciting, competitive future full of possibilities.”
