"Behind every successful cloud infrastructure, SaaS, on-demand software, and mobile technology startup is a handful of power players guiding the founders. The Power Players in the Cloud list spans a wide range of talents, from seed investors to accountants to developers to founders to venture capitalists to legal counsel," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "These individuals are helping emerging startups create a new digital age that goes beyond consumer, beyond business enterprise. They are bringing the next generation of technical innovation to the on-demand sector and the Global Silicon Valley."
The 2013 Power Players in the Cloud were nominated by their peers—investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders—and selected from among hundreds of individuals in the on-demand entrepreneurial community. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2013 list.
