According to Forbes, Bessemer Venture Partners, and Salesforce Ventures, the 20 Rising Stars represent 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, a top cloud investor, and partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “As they continue to gain momentum and ramp toward unicorn status, many of our past Rising Stars have gone on to become members of the exclusive Cloud 100. As an early partner to many mission-driven founders over the years, we are thrilled to celebrate the bright futures of our 2021 Rising Stars.”
