Letter from the Publisher
Once again this year, in conjunction with our annual “Fastest Growing Private Companies” feature, we present to you a celebration of companies from that prestigious list that have emerged as genuine “disruptors.”
To be a disruptor in 2021 took ingenuity, creativity, game-changing innovation, outside-the-box thinking, maverick leadership, trend-setting practices and an attitude that blends a constant eye toward the future and a refusal to settle for mediocrity.
One of the great things about the Los Angeles region is that we have historically incubated a remarkable number of disruptive companies here. And there are quite a few that are doing trailblazing work right now.
With this special section, we shine the spotlight on such companies in a variety of categories which to honor them. Our Disruptor of the Year, Innovator Award, Accelerator Award, RSM Middle Market Award, Social Responsibility Award and Sustainability Award were all presented to their worthy recipients on December 8th as part of a special online event in conjunction with our unveiling of the 25 fastest growing private companies in the region.
Congratulations to the disruptors and thanks for the inspiration!
