While many of the leading companies in the cloud appear in the ranks of the first-ever Forbes Cloud 100 list, some promising companies were too small to be eligible—but too fast-growing to ignore.
The Cloud 100 Rising Stars represent 20 cloud companies that Forbes and list partners Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures recognize as leading up-and-comers in the field, each differentiating in a different category.
All of these companies are strong candidates to join their more mature peers on the Cloud 100 in future years, provided they stay independent and forego an IPO for at least a few more months. They range in headquarters from New York to Australia, and in categories from nonprofits and education to network security and healthcare.
