This summer, Forbes will publish The Cloud 100, a list of the top privately-held cloud companies and Salesforce Ventures is excited to announce that nominations are now open at www.thecloud100.com! We expect our portfolio and strategic ISV partners will be well represented in this list.
Salesforce pioneered a new technology model with our cloud platform, a new pay-as-you-go business model focused on customer success. This vision has fueled our incredible growth, made us the global leader in CRM, and defined the era of enterprise cloud computing. The Cloud 100 is a way to recognize current cloud industry leaders, promote the adoption of cloud technologies and inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs to build the next wave of Cloud 100 companies.
We’re delighted to work with Forbes and Bessemer Venture Partners on this effort. Salesforce pioneered the cloud model 17 years ago, and Salesforce Ventures is the leading corporate investor in cloud companies. Bessemer Venture Partners is a leading venture investor in the cloud and a terrific partner and co-investor. Forbes offers high visibility with its strong global technology coverage both in print and online, and editorial excellence for follow-up stories and deeper company coverage.
In addition, we’ve invited the world’s top public cloud company CEOs and cloud industry luminaries, including Parker Harris, co-founder of Salesforce, to participate as judges and mentors for our list of winners.
