We’re excited to share that Inc., one of the world's most trusted business-media brands, has included NEXT on its Best-Led Companies list. 

The list was created using a 12-point ranking of management excellence for mid-size U.S. firms with revenue of $50 million to $2 billion. The program is the first Inc. recognition list to honor both public and private companies.

The final list recognizes 250 companies that employ 35 million people, about one of four U.S. workers. 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 mid-sized 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 business will benefit from an exciting, competitive future full of possibilities."

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
  • Leadership team.

"We started NEXT Insurance with the goal of helping small businesses thrive by revolutionizing access to tailored and affordable insurance policies," says Guy Goldstein, CEO and co-founder of NEXT. "To achieve this, putting in place an unstoppable leadership team that is as dedicated to our mission as our company culture is absolutely necessary. One of our top goals is to be the best place to work, and this will continue to be an essential priority. We are honored that Inc. has recognized NEXT as one of the Best-Led Companies alongside many other notable companies making an impact and difference within our communities."

NEXT's fully digital one-stop-shop platform provides a simple and affordable purchasing experience. It provides personalized digital policies including, general liability, professional liability, commercial auto, commercial property, business owner's policy, workers' compensation, and other must-have coverage.

NEXT is committed to helping small businesses thrive and is the first and only small business insurtech company to earn AM Best ratings of "A-" Excellent based on Financial Strength and Long-Term Issuer Credit.
