It all began with a vision in a tiny office in Mountain View, California. In 2007, after several years at WebEx & salesforce.com, K.V. Rao, Cheng Zou and Tien Tzuo began to evangelize a fundamentally new business model. One where companies of all sizes would offer broad libraries of services via subscriptions. And one that would challenge the 20th century manufacturing economy by shifting the focus to delivering services instead of products. They called this the Subscription Economy.
Since then, Zuora has been enabling the Subscription Economy by building the next generation commerce platform. Zuora’s subscription management software has enabled 21st century businesses around the world from startups to enterprises in any industry to launch and monetize any subscription products and services.
Defined by our rapid pace of product innovation and our relentless commitment to customer success Zuora has fostered a loyal customer community—each, in their own way, driving the Subscription Economy. And it’s not just our customers. Zuora and the Subscription Economy have attracted major buzz from some of the best known news publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, BBC and TechCrunch.
Today, Zuora is headquartered in Foster City, CA, with satellite offices throughout North America, Europe and China. More than 400 passionate professionals enable us to power the Subscription Economy.
