The research process for uncovering the Enterprise Tech 30 also uncovered some thought-provoking insights about the state of Enterprise Tech, including:

  • 80% of the highest potential Enterprise Tech startups have adopted a product-led growth* model, where sales is not required to use or access the product. Of that 80%, 36% have adopted a fully open-source version of their commercial product. We have seen sustained year-over-year growth in this trend since 2019.
  • 3 sectors account for >70% of the highest-potential companies listed: Enterprise Data, Productivity & Collaboration, and Security.
    • Purpose-built data solutions are over-represented with 9 of 31 (29%) companies on this year’s list as compared to other sectors. Data remains top-of-mind as the greatest area of opportunity and innovation for the Enterprise.
    • 10 of 31 (32%) companies in this year’s ET30 focus on improving how we work, particularly due to the unprecedented shift to remote over the past year.
    • 5 of the 31 (16%) companies in this year’s ET30 are in security, which has grown into a board-level topic for all enterprises over the past few years.
  • 68% (21 of 31) of CEOs in this year’s ET30 are millennials with the median age of 36 across early- and mid-stage companies—hopping to 41 for late-stage.
  • 100% of companies selected by corporate development teams also appeared on the core ET30 list selected by the Venture Capitalists.

“Innovation in the Enterprise is being driven by startups. The Enterprise Tech 30 shines a light and celebrates the companies truly driving that innovation,” said Rajeev Chand, Partner and Head of Research at Wing VC.
