Five years ago, we founded G2 Crowd with the mission of bringing transparency to the B2B software marketplace.
This past year, G2 Crowd has been doing a lot of celebrating. We expanded beyond the world of software into business services and received a series B round of funding from Accel, with participation by LinkedIn. Our team has nearly doubled and we are sharing multiple new report types. We welcomed back one of our co-founders, Godard Abel, as executive chairman and launched our philanthropic branch, G2 Gives (with the first million of our series B funding designated for charitable giving). And while these were very exciting achievements, nothing speaks to our original mission quite like the milestone we achieved today.
We are very excited to announce that we have surpassed more than 250,000 verified-user reviews.
To all of our reviewers, we are so excited to have you on this journey with us. Thanks to your authentic insights, our nearly one million monthly visitors are able to make more informed B2B buying decisions. You are the crowd, and you are bringing transparency to the B2B marketplace!
Just over a year ago, we were celebrating our 100,000th review. The growth we have seen since is incredible and only continues to fuel the future of G2 Crowd.
We are adding new products daily and diving even deeper into our existing data to expose more insights for buyers. But ultimately, G2 Crowd is only as strong as the information you, our beloved crowd, provide to us.
I encourage you to continue reviewing new solutions you use, updating old reviews, and sharing your insights via LinkedIn. If you are in the market for new business software or services, be sure to leverage our more than 250,000 verified-user reviews to make the most informed decision possible.
This is a major accomplishment for G2 Crowd, but I believe wholeheartedly that it is truly only the beginning. With the next 250,000 reviews will also come new exciting announcements and developments - we can’t wait to share them with you.
Thank you again for helping us bring transparency to the B2B solutions marketplace.
