Forbes Puts Collective Bias Among 'Most Promising'

Fast-growing Collective Bias in Bentonville was recognized Tuesday as being one of the most promisng companies in the U.S.

Collective Bias came in at No. 18 in the Forbes magazine list of 25 promising, privately-held, high-growth companies. The list included companies with less than $250 million in annual revenue; Collective Bias revenue is near $16 million, Forbes said.

Collective Bias was founded in 2009 in Bentonville, but it now has satellite offices in New York, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Chicago, Toronto and London.

Tuesday’s recognition as one of the nation’s most promising companies accounted for the third time since February last year that Forbes has taken note of the Collective Bias success.

In April 2013, Forbes described Collective Bias as one of “the five most important new companies you need to know," noting its ability to influence retailers’ target customers.

In February 2013, Forbes described Collective Bias co-founder Amy Callahan as one of the nation’s 11 women who started amazing companies. Callahan is the company’s chief operating officer.
