Our CEO, Tod Nielsen, accepted the prestigious award yesterday evening in San Francisco at The Cloud 100 Celebration, an exclusive event hosted by Bessemer Venture Partners, Forbes and Salesforce Ventures. The celebration was attended by the CEOs of the public cloud companies and the CEOs named to The Cloud 100, including some of our customers and partners such as Docusign, NewVoiceMedia, Gainsight and Avalara.
Out of hundreds of submissions, FinancialForce was selected by a judges’ panel, made up of a majority of public cloud company CEOs. The panel selected and ranked the top 100 companies from all over the world based on four factors: estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), people & culture (15%) and market leadership (35%). Tod Nielsen commented on the exciting company honor: “Being named to Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 list further underscores our passion and unwavering commitment to helping our customers thrive at speed and achieve their own success.”
The Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 and 20 Rising Stars lists are published online at www.forbes.com/cloud100 and will appear in the July 27, 2017 issue of Forbes magazine.
