Accolade comes as Silvernest marks first year in business, achieves 64% month-over-month homeowner growth

Boulder, Colo. – Oct 25, 2016 – Silvernest, an online roommate-matching service for Boomers and empty nesters, has been recognized as one of the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” by Entrepreneur magazine’s Entrepreneur 360™ List, the most comprehensive analysis of private companies in America. Based on this study forged by Entrepreneur, Silvernest is recognized as a well-rounded company that has mastered a balance of impact, innovation, growth and leadership.

Additionally, Silvernest was selected for the “Startups to Watch: 10 Innovators Making More Happen” list, an honor presented by Staples and Entrepreneur Media.

“We’re exceptionally proud to have made these lists, and it’s particularly fitting that we’re being recognized this month as we celebrate the many milestones of our first year in business,” said Silvernest CEO Wendi Burkhardt. “Our goal is to continue carving out growth at the forefront of the home sharing economy, and fulfill on the promise of Silvernest as ‘one to watch’.”

Silvernest offers a unique online service that pairs Boomer and empty nester homeowners with compatible housemates, enabling them to remain in their homes longer by generating extra income from their underutilized space. Silvernest is the first company to offer end-to-end home sharing services for aging homeowners, including home listings, roommate matching, background screenings, lease origination and payment processing – all through a secure and simple dashboard.

“The Entrepreneur 360 List celebrates outstanding companies for the value they bring to the world, not just the worth of their company,” says Ryan Shea, president of Entrepreneur Media, Inc. “The companies on this list exemplify growth, not just in top and bottom line, but in their ability to create a superior value for their customers, build adaptive learning cultures, and drive innovation in their marketplace.”

Honorees were identified based on the results from a comprehensive study of independently owned companies, using a proprietary algorithm and other advanced analytics. The algorithm was built on a balanced scorecard designed to measure four metrics reflecting major pillars of entrepreneurship—innovation, growth, leadership and impact.
