CNBC DISRUPTOR 50

 

We’re very happy to announce that Zuora ranks #11 on this year’s annual CNBC Disruptor 50 list! We’re honored to be recognized along with such groundreaking companies as SpaceX, Warby Parker, Palantir, Spotify, Etsy and Uber, not to mention our friends at Docusign.

 

In the words of CNBC:

 

“In the second annual Disruptor 50 List, CNBC features private companies in 27 industries—from aerospace to enterprise software to retail—whose innovations are revolutionizing the business landscape. These forward-thinking upstarts have identified unexploited niches in the marketplace that have the potential to become billion-dollar businesses, and they rushed to fill them. In the process, they are creating new ecosystems for their products and services. Unseating corporate giants is no easy feat. But we ranked those venture capital–backed companies doing the best job. Already it’s hard to think of the world without them.”

 

From Zuora’s Profile:

 

“We live in an increasingly subscription-based economy, argues Zuora co-founder and CEO Tien Tzuo. As evidence, he points to movies, DVDs, music and even cars as things that consumers are more likely to obtain via a subscription service than through a purchase. And that’s where Zuora comes in. The 7-year-old company makes the billing software for those subscription-based businesses so they don’t have to manage costly and complicated in-house systems.

 

Tzuo is no stranger to the subscription space, having spent nine years at Salesforce.com, where he helped build its original systems and served as the company’s chief marketing officer and chief strategy officer. In fact, Salesforce.com founder Marc Benioff was an investor in Zuora’s first round of financing.”
