VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ – Klue, the category leader in competitive enablement, has been named the 212 fastest-growing company in North America in Deloitte’s annual Fast 50™ and Fast 500™ awards.
Deloitte’s Fast 50™ and 500™ awards recognize the fastest-growing technology companies based on the highest revenue-growth percentage over the past four years. Klue has accomplished 667% percent in revenue growth from 2019 to 2022.
Klue’s CEO Jason Smith credits Klue’s impact on closing customers’ competitive revenue gap and investments in product and machine learning with the company’s revenue growth. Smith said:
“It’s an honour to be included on Deloitte’s North American Technology Fast 50 and 500 list. When I look at the amazing companies we’re named alongside, many aren’t winning business by a mile over their competitors. It’s often by a sliver. Klue remains singularly focused on delivering the intel our customers need to win the business they should have won over the competition. Here’s to our customers and every company out there growing their business faster than their competitors and narrowing their own competitive revenue gap.”
Following a $62 million Series B funding announcement in December 2021, Klue has continued to invest heavily in product development, generative AI, and machine learning. Now, Klue has announced the launch of its new product Klue Win-Loss, bringing buyer intelligence into it’s platform. Klue Win-Loss directly interviews customer’s buyers and uses AI to find trends that help companies understand who they’re losing business to, why they’re losing that business, and how to win more against the competition.
“Each year I look forward to reviewing the progress and innovations of our Technology Fast 500 winners as these companies truly demonstrate how important new ideas are to progressing our society and the world, especially during difficult times,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chair, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “While software and services and life sciences continue to dominate the top 10, I’m encouraged to see other categories making their mark. Congratulations to all the winners who show us how creativity, hard work and perseverance can lead to success.”
Klue wishes to thank all of its customers, investors, advisors and employees for the contributions that led to the rapid revenue growth recognized by Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50™ and Fast 500™ programs.
