Congratulations to portfolio company Plaid for being recognized by Forbes as one of the best private cloud companies in the world. Plaid comes in at #17 on the list of 100 companies.
The Forbes Cloud 100, produced in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures, recognizes the best private cloud companies in the world. Ranging from small startups to private-equity-backed giants, and scattered across the globe from Silicon Valley to Australia and Belgium, the companies on the Cloud 100 stand out for their growth, sales, valuation and culture, as well as a reputation score derived from consultation with 40 CEO judges from their public-cloud-company peers. Stripe remains in the top slot, but there's movement nearly everywhere else, with no fewer than 17 companies from last year's list graduating off through acquisition or IPO. Stepping in are high-flying newcomers like Plaid (No. 17) and TripActions (No. 19), along with a new top five of cloud data warehouse Snowflake, RPA standout UiPath, infrastructure automator HashiCorp and data analytics leader Datadog.
