Forbes recently released their popular Cloud 100, a listing of the top 100 private cloud computing companies. The list features prominent technology companies like Dropbox and Slack, and includes companies from a wide variety of industries. As part of the selection process for the 2018 list, Forbes’ data partner, Bessemer Venture Partners, received hundreds of submissions from the top cloud startups. A panel of judges selected the providers based on four factors: estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), people & culture (15%) and market leadership (35%), which the judge panel then weighed to select, score and rank the winners.
