2nd annual list recognizes private companies that put purpose before profit

CHICAGO (December 9, 2021) – Arturo, an AI-powered platform that derives property insights and predictive analytics from aerial and satellite imagery, today announced it has been named to the Inc. 2021 Best in Business list in the insurance category. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have gone above and beyond to make a positive impact. 

The list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine, recognizes small- and medium-size privately held American businesses that have had an outstanding influence on their communities or industries, the environment, or society as a whole. 

“It is a tremendous honor to be named to Inc.’s 2021 Best in Business list in the insurance category,” John-Isaac “jC” Clark, chief executive officer of Arturo says. “This award truly reflects our journey as a company, especially as we have continued accelerating our capabilities and deepening our presence in insurance to provide actionable intelligence across the policy life cycle. We have accomplished so much as a team over the past few years, and what excites me the most is that we’re just getting started.” 

Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., says, “What began for us during the pandemic as an effort to showcase companies that were helping the community has grown into a recognition of social, environmental, and economic impact. The companies on this year’s list are changemakers with heart – and they’re pouring the best of their business into the people and communities around them.” 

Rather than relying on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in more than 49 different industries – from finance, software, and engineering to fashion and more – and in age-based and revenue-based categories. The applicant pool was extremely competitive, with around 2,700 entries and an acceptance rate in the low single digits – a huge success for these honors in the list’s second year. Honorees for gold, silver, bronze, and general excellence across industries and categories are featured online at inc.com/best-in-business.
