Last year, venture capital firm Bessemer Ventures coined a new phrase to describe SaaS startups who have achieved $100M ARR: Centaur. According to the report, there are approximately 160 private cloud Centaurs in the world, making these companies about seven times more rare than unicorns.
Among that rare breed of SaaS startups is UserZoom, a user experience (UX) insights management company that helps businesses gather and manage the insights they need to design and deliver exceptional digital experiences.
Co-founded by Alfonso de la Nuez in 2007, UserZoom has grown from a bootstrapped firm out of Spain into a $100M ARR, global organization with Fortune 100 customers across the retail, e-commerce, healthcare, financial services, technology, and insurance industries.
To date, the startup has raised $150 million in venture capital funding and is backed by Silicon Valley investors Sunstone Capital and Owl Rock. Last year, UserZoom was acquired by top software investment firm, Thoma Bravo, for $810 million.
In a Founders Network global keynote, Alfonso will share his journey with UserZoom where he served as CEO. He’ll provide tips on how to scale a SaaS startup to $100 million ARR and achieve centaur status.
