Ironclad - Forbes Magazine's Next Billion-Dollar Startup

Humbled and honored, Ironclad has made the Forbes and TrueBridge Capital Partners 2020 list of the 25 fastest-growing venture-backed startups most likely to reach a $1 billion valuation. Ironclad customers Acorns and Rippling were recognized as well.

How it happened: TrueBridge asked 300 venture capital firms to nominate the companies they thought were most likely to become unicorns, while Forbes reached out directly to more than 100 startups. “Then came the deeper look, as we analyzed finances for roughly 140 of them and interviewed founders,” Forbes noted. “This list represents… [those] we think have the best shot of reaching the billion-dollar mark.”

Why we do this
