Top 100 Startups with the Biggest Growth Spikes Last Week

At Mattermark we’re all about rewarding the consistent high-growth over the long term, and that’s what our proprietary Mattermark score calculates (and also factors out big spikes due to suddenly buying a bunch of likes, tweets, PR etc). However, it can also be a lot of fun to see who is spiking across the signals we track.

We asked our Twitter followers to help us get to 20 retweets to prove there is enough interest in this topic, and so without further ado I present to you the top 100 growth spikes last week, as measured by a weighted average of the growth rates of their web traffic, inbound links, Facebook page likes, Twitter followers and LinkedIn followers. How many of them have you heard of before?
