While we’ve had a tremendous year in many ways — closing our Series B round of funding and soaring past 100 employees, just to name a few — this honor is especially meaningful. It proves that building a company with strong core values of mindfulness, ownership, and transparency can make a positive impact.
Making a difference
Inc.’s Best In Business awards recognize companies that have gone above and beyond to make a positive difference in the world. Rather than relying on quantitative marks tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed nominees’ achievements over the past year. Special emphasis was placed on the noteworthy efforts that had a resoundingly positive impact on not just the business, but the industries, communities, and people surrounding it.
“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,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc.
“Our mission is to bring the internet everywhere while also staying true to our values of mindfulness, ownership, and transparency to empower our employees to do the best work of their careers.” Ben Forgan, CEO & co-founder, Hologram.
At Hologram, this means incorporating our guiding principles into everything we do. For example, our Customer Success team’s mindfulness and transparency with customers demonstrates how we are more than just a carrier but also a partner. In another demonstration of our values in action, we designed our Dashboard to provide customers with the transparency to see connectivity across their IoT deployment, and the ownership to activate, pause, and unpause devices at any time. These tenets are the common thread in our approach to growing the IoT space, and they are what enable us to provide the connectivity to help our customers do amazing things — from reducing food waste to revolutionizing micromobility.
