Earlier this month, the Boston Globe’s Globe Magazine unveiled its annual list of the top 100 women-led businesses in Massachusetts. At least five MIT alumnae were named to the 2014 list.

According to the Globe, the 13th annual list—a collaboration between the magazine and the non-profit Commonwealth Institute—highlights organizations with impressive records of innovation, diversity, revenue, and large employee numbers.

“We looked at revenue or operating budget and, for the first time, added other variables: number of full-time employees in the state, workplace and management diversity, and innovative projects. We then ranked organizations according to our own formula. We considered both for-profit and nonprofit organizations.”

Check out the MIT alumnae who were named to the list, then read the full list of 100 woman-led businesses and a Globe Magazine interview with Anita Rajan Worden ’90.
