Nikola Labs Named to Silicon 60 Companies to Watch

COLUMBUS, Ohio, September 19, 2016

Today, Nikola Labs was named by EE Times to their annual Silicon 60 list of companies to watch.

EE Times has selected 25 startup companies, including Nikola Labs, to come on to version 17.1 of its list of 60 firms that the editorial staff felt worthy of keeping an eye on. The selection of the 60 companies in Silicon 60 v17.1 is based on the consideration of a mix of criteria including: technology, intended market, financial position and investment profile, maturity and executive leadership. They are emerging companies to follow — for a variety of reasons.

EE Times has been updating and publishing the Silicon 60 since April 2004 to reflect the latest corporate, commercial, technology and market conditions. The latest batch of newcomers include companies active in materials, MEMS sensors and actuators, displays, machine learning, networking, EDA, image sensing, open-hardware, memory and wireless power.
