number of funds as well as its portfolio companies. In addition to receiving surveys from these companies, we consulted regulatory agencies and industry associations.
As indicated, BLACK ENTERPRISE consulted industry analysts and other sources to verify the information contained in the lists. Companies that may have previously appeared on the BE 100S but have been excluded this year are either no longer black-owned or their financial status has dropped below the minimum threshold to make any of the lists.
The BE 100S are available on disk in both Windows and Mac formats. TopList Software provides mailing addresses and phone numbers of the companies as well as information on black organizations. For more information on TopList, contact B.E. Unlimited at 212-886-9576.
