Forbes’ Largest Privately-Owned Companies in the US


Forbes’ Largest Privately-Owned Companies in the US

I’ll be in Minneapolis on Jan. 20 (Thursday afternoon) to speak to the Tableau user group there about the newly-released 2nd edition of Tableau Your Data!, using Tableau for predictive analytics and discovery, and the field of data science in general. It’s the first of many TUGs i’ll be attending in the coming months as part of my 2nd edition book tour.

This talk is being hosted at Cargill. I’ve known of Cargill for many years, but I didn’t realize that they are the largest privately-owned company in the United States. Cargill’s revenues in 2015 exceeded $120 billion with 150,000 employees and operations in 70 countries. Of course, that made me want to investigate how many big, privately-owned companies there are in the United States. I used some data from Forbes to build the dashboard that you see below. And if you’re going to be at the event, come over and say hello!
