Six Tennessee companies make Forbes “America’s Best Start-up Employers 2021 List”

Two companies from Chattanooga and four from Nashville were the only ones to make the Forbes “America’s Best Start-up Employers 2021 List.”

A total of 500 start-ups made the list. As noted by Forbes, new ventures “are well known for offering employees above-average perks, like catered lunches and lavish retreats. But what happens when those are no longer possible due to a global pandemic? The 500 companies on our list of ‘America’s Best Start-up Employers’ have had to pivot, attracting and engaging employees through virtual games, classes and support systems in a year unlike any other. Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to identify the up-and-coming companies liked best by their employees in our second-annual ranking of America’s best start-up employers. The list was compiled by evaluating 2,500 American businesses with at least 50 employees on three criteria: employer reputation, employee satisfaction and growth.”

The Volunteer State start-ups making the list by ranking are:
