Today, Fortune has revealed their new “Fortune 50“, listing the 50 companies best positioned for strong future growth. Here at Gogo, we are extremely proud to announce that we have made their list of challengers – validating our commitment as the inflight internet company as well as our latest technology innovations like 2Ku inflight global broadband and our new Vision Touch wireless entertainment platform.
Fortune worked closely together with the Boston Consulting Group to create the list, and their methodology builds off two pillars: Market potential and company capacity. 50% of our score was calculated off a combination of 14 different factors, including our strategy, technology, investment, and our people.
In the video above, Fortune deputy editor Brian O’Keefe explains their methodology. Fortune and the BGC screened over 2400 companies before creating the final list.
The end result of this calculation positioned Gogo number 14 on the list of challengers, which consists of companies with market value under $20 Billion. You’ll find our company profile listed here on the Fortune 50 site.
The full list can be found here, where you’ll see the other companies that join in the new Fortune 50. On Monday, October 23 you can pick up the print edition of Fortune which includes extensive coverage of the 50 companies . On behalf of the 1,183 people here at Gogo, we’d like to thank Fortune and the Boston Consulting Group for including Gogo in this prestigious new list.See all articles
