Pepperdine Graziadio Business School Announces the 2021 List of Most Fundable Companies

On October 14th, 2021, the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School revealed its list of 16 Most Fundable Companies® during its virtual showcase event, presented by the Singleton Foundation for Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship. More than 3,300 early-stage US companies across all 50 states participated in the Most Fundable Companies initiative, which is a free resource to assist startups in securing capital to accelerate meaningful innovation across industries and communities. The companies on the fourth annual list are located across the US and come from a variety of industries including energy, healthcare technology, and consumer products. 

The Most Fundable Companies are evaluated on several company variables including financial projections, market opportunity, intellectual property, competitive advantage in their market, and the strength of the management team expertise. Each of these variables is then used to generate objective and customized feedback and scoring to improve readiness for funding. The Pepperdine Graziadio Business School’s Most Fundable Companies is powered by the Venture Alliance.

Among its startup recognitions were FLX Solutions, Inc., Gales, Inc., and PB Analytics, Inc. (d/b/a Rixon Technology), all of which received a Platinum designation, the highest recognition attainable. Among the Most Fundable Companies winners, were three Pepperdine Graziadio Business School and Pepperdine Caruso School of Law alumni: Wayne Rickard (MBA '92) with Terecircuits, Dan O’Day (JD '93, MBA '92) with ECFX, and Nelson Quintero (JD '92) with ECFX.
