What is the 20 Rising Stars? 

The 20 Rising Stars represents young high-growth and category-leading cloud companies who have raised up to $25 million to date, and are poised to join the Cloud 100 ranks.

“The Rising Stars of today are the Cloud 100 companies of tomorrow”, said Byron Deeter, top cloud investor, and partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “Many of our past Rising Stars have gone on to become members of the exclusive Cloud 100, and we’re certain many of this year’s honorees will follow suit. As an early partner to many exceptional founders over the years, we are thrilled to celebrate the bright futures of our 2019 Rising Stars.”

“The 20 Rising Stars list includes innovative cloud companies that are developing next-generation technology to meet customer demand,” said Matt Garratt, managing partner of Salesforce Ventures. “We see great potential for these companies in the future on the Cloud 100 list and are excited to watch them as they disrupt industries around the world.”

“For four years now, we have ranked the best and brightest emerging companies in the cloud sector,” said Alex Konrad, Forbes editor of The Cloud 100. “With so many businesses growing fast in the cloud, from cybersecurity and marketing to data analytics and storage, it’s harder than ever to make the Cloud 100 list — but with more elite company if you do.”
