On the heels of our Series D funding announcement and inclusion on Fast Company’s 100 Best Workplaces for Innovators list, Hopin is now honored to be deemed a global leader among cloud-based businesses.

Today, Hopin has been named to the 2021 Forbes Cloud 100, coming in at number 21. This is Forbes’ sixth-annual version of the list, which ranks the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, and is created in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures.

Hundreds of submissions are reviewed each year. This group of cloud startups and private companies is evaluated across four key areas: market leadership (35%), estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), and people and culture (15%). A panel of 34 public cloud company CEOs then reviews the businesses and ranks them.

“The companies of the Cloud 100 list represent the best and brightest emerging companies in the cloud sector,” said Alex Konrad, senior editor at Forbes.

“The last 18 months have made digital transformation an urgent imperative and the cloud has never been more pivotal in powering our new digital economy," said Alex Kayyal, Managing Partner, Salesforce Ventures. “The companies on this list represent the leaders and businesses shaping the future of the cloud ecosystem and we are excited to partner with Bessemer Venture Partners and Forbes to honor these trailblazers of the industry.”

At Hopin, our products and technology help us fulfill our mission of bringing people together for the best shared experiences.
