AppsFlyer named to the Forbes Cloud 100 list for third time
SAN FRANCISCO (August 9, 2023) – AppsFlyer has been named to the Forbes 2023 Cloud 100, the definitive ranking of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, published by Forbes in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures. This marks the third time that AppsFlyer has been named to the Forbes Cloud 100 list, and the company continues to ascend in the rankings, currently coming in at #27.
“We are honored to be named on the Forbes Cloud 100 once again this year in our highest-ever ranking,” said Oren Kaniel, CEO and Co-Founder of AppsFlyer. “With the ecosystem increasingly focused on user privacy, AppsFlyer has heeded the call and built industry-leading, privacy-first products like our Privacy Cloud and Data Clean Room to help shape the future of measurement and create a better, safer digital landscape. Being surrounded on this list by some of the best and most inspiring cloud companies in the world validates our mission, and pushes us in developing next-gen tools for marketers. This recognition is shared across our organization, and with our partners and our customers who trust us to collaborate and support their growth.״
For the eighth consecutive year, the Cloud 100 reviews submissions from hundreds of cloud startups and private companies each year. The Cloud 100 evaluation process involved ranking companies across four factors: market leadership (35%), estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), and people & culture (15%). For market leadership, the Cloud 100 enlists the help of a judging panel of public cloud company CEOs who assist in evaluating and ranking their private company peers.
“The companies of the Cloud 100 list represent the best and brightest private companies in this crucial tech sector,” said Kenrick Cai, the Forbes editor of the Cloud 100. “This year’s companies had to react rapidly to AI’s sweeping impact while contending with a market pullback. Their resilience puts them in elite company. Congratulations to each of the 2023 Cloud 100 honorees and the 20 Rising Stars who are showing early potential to one day join their ranks.”
“This year’s Cloud 100 list is one of the most dynamic in history. While the industry faced macro headwinds, the 2023 Cloud 100 winners displayed the innovation and resilience of the cloud economy and the combination of growth and efficiency that prove the power of the cloud business model. 95% of the honorees are forecasted to reach Centaur status — $100 million of annual recurring revenue — by the end of the year,” said Mary D’Onofrio, partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “It is further exciting to see so many honorees at the forefront of the AI revolution, which we believe will continue to transform the cloud and propel the next wave of growth for many of this year’s winners.”
“The past year our industry has seen a generational step forward in innovation and with AI leading the charge, we are witnessing one of the most important platform shifts in decades,” said Paul Drews, managing partner, Salesforce Ventures. “The Cloud 100 list represents the best of the best and we’ve never been more excited about what the future holds, not only
for the cloud but for the entire technology industry. We are proud of what these founders and their communities have already accomplished and look forward to seeing how they continue to transform the industry in the future.”
