        Many of those companies are not start ups but generally established companies – What did you base yourself on to decide that they are the top 60 start ups – is it based on some sort of criteria like growth in the last 12 months ? Or is it just a list of companies you know of? There are so many of those lists that come out but I am still struggling to find one that really did their homework and explain to the audience how they came up with the list? I think there is a risk of credibility when publishing lists that do not have strong data to back them up. In any case, looking forward to hearing from you in regards to the criteria.
