The decision was announced on Dec. 6, 2013 when a panel of judges selected the honorees based on financial stability of the company, ability to overcome adversity or challenges, community involvement and service, distinguishing or defining qualities and company vision. To be eligible, companies had to employ fewer than 25 full-time employees, operate a for-profit business for three or more years and be located in the Kansas City metro.
Steve Roatch, CEO of Twentyseven Global, said, “We’re very honored to receive this incredible recognition. We owe this to our amazing clients, without whom this wouldn’t be possible, and we’re very fortunate to have such great employees. Our team brings the right skills and an engineering discipline to developing software, which enables us to consistently exceed our clients’ expectations in both cost and quality.”
According to Thinking Bigger, honorees will be profiled in a special 25 Under 25® supplement in the February issue of Thinking Bigger Business magazine and are invited to be guests on the Smart Companies radio show. In addition, a pre-gala dinner is held for the honorees. The events culminate in a black tie optional awards Dinner & Gala to be held on March 8, 2014. The 25 Under 25® Dinner & Gala features a cocktail reception, Wall of Fame, dinner and awards presentation and a live band with dancing.
