Two young Madison companies are among 360 named by Entrepreneur magazine as the “best entrepreneurial companies in America.”

Ideas that Evoke, a marketing agency, and DotCom Therapy, a transplant to Madison that offers speech and language therapy online, are on the 2017 Entrepreneur360 list.

Ideas that Evoke is No. 273 and DotCom Therapy is No. 332.

Entrepreneur says it chose companies whose leaders “expertly balance impact, innovation, growth and leadership to grow their business.”

DotCom Therapy offers speech and occupational therapy and mental health services via videoconferencing.

Emily Purdom and Rachel Robinson were school-based speech therapists in Springfield, Missouri, and started the company two years ago after they were recruited to serve clients as far away as rural Alaska because of a lack of available speech therapists.

Purdom and Robinson moved company headquarters to Madison earlier this year and have been attracting attention ever since.

DotCom Therapy claimed twin wins at the entrepreneur-focused, eight-day Forward Fest in August, topping both the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce’s Pressure Chamber pitch competition and StartingBlock Madison’s Challenge Cup.

The company also took first place in the information technology category of the Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan Contest in June.

As for the company’s latest recognition, Robinson said, “We were excited and thrilled to make this list.

Entrepreneur is a publication we follow closely, and to be recognized as one of the top 360 small businesses is an absolute honor.”

Companies can submit an application to be considered for the list.
