Inclusion in the AlwaysOn Global 250 signifies leadership amongst its peers as well as game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players in the Global Silicon Valley. ThirdLove was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

This is the fourth honor ThirdLove has received since launching in late 2013. In September, AlwaysOn awarded the Company one of the Top Private Companies focused on mobile, and then in December, Mashable named ThirdLove a Top 10 App of 2013. In early 2014, ThirdLove was featured as a “Best New App” by Apple in the App Store. ThirdLove will be honored again at AlwaysOn’s 12th annual Innovation Summit at the Computer History Museum on July 29th and 30th, 2014.

“Innovative tech companies are solving everyday problems and flipping stagnant industries on their heads,” said Heidi Zak, co-founder and President of ThirdLove. “At ThirdLove, we are disrupting how women get fitted for lingerie and raising the bar by providing higher quality product in more targeted sizes, all at an affordable price point. We believe that the future of shopping is personalized and mobile, and are thrilled that AlwaysOn recognizes this shift and our innovative work.”

“Consumer apps are pairing consumers with goods and services from all across the globe,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “The Global Silicon Valley is responding to shifting user patterns, as the desktop gives way to mobile devices. More legacy industries are being redefined by the innovation community, making the companies on this year’s AlwaysOn Global 250 the highest-growth opportunities in today’s private company marketplace.”
