SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Grand Rounds, the leader in matching employers and employees to high-quality health care, has been named to the Forbes 2018 Cloud 100, the definitive list of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, published by Forbes in collaboration with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures. The San Francisco based health technology company has been named to the list the two years running and is one of five companies in the health care category this year.
"The typical consumer experience of health care today is fragmented and impersonal. What if technology, automation and data science could all be put against health care as a problem set?" said Wade Chambers, Chief Technology Officer and SVP Engineering, Grand Rounds. "Personalized quality health care is a mandate at Grand Rounds, and we're tackling the deepest technical challenges required to improve the system, change lives, and build an enduring business."
As part of the rigorous selection process for the Forbes 2018 Cloud 100, Bessemer Venture Partners received submissions from the top cloud startups. The Forbes Cloud 100 judging panel, including top public cloud company CEOs, reviewed the data to select, score and rank the top 100 cloud companies from all over the world. The evaluation process involved four factors: market leadership (35%), estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), and people & culture (15%).
"For the past three years, the Cloud 100 list has identified the top cloud companies that are reshaping their respective industries," said Alex Konrad, Forbes editor of The Cloud 100. "I am consistently impressed by the caliber of companies honored on the Cloud 100 list. It is an exciting time to a be a cloud company and founder."
"All of the twenty-five cloud IPOs and major cloud acquisitions over the past three years have been prior members of the Cloud 100, and we absolutely expect that the dominant public cloud companies of the future will also come from this list," said Byron Deeter, a top cloud investor and partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. "The 2018 Cloud 100 represents well over $135B in private shareholder value--an astonishing figure that reminds us yet again of the power of the cloud. The way we do business will be dramatically different as a result of these companies and I am honored to celebrate the remarkable accomplishments of the founders and teams behind each company on the 2018 Cloud 100."
The Forbes 2018 Cloud 100 list is published online at www.forbes.com/cloud100 and will appear in the September 2018 issue of Forbes magazine.
