This year’s Forbes Cloud 100 list includes companies who are advancing collaboration — and we’re proud that Front is a part of it.

We’ve always believed that teamwork makes individuals and companies stronger, and in 2020 we’ve come to believe that more than ever: collaboration unleashes your full potential.

This year we are proud that Front has been recognized by Forbes and Bessemer Venture Partners on the Cloud 100, an annual ranking of the world’s top private cloud companies. We’re thrilled to be listed among world-class brands like Stripe, Snowflake, Pendo, and many more — and we couldn’t help but notice a powerful similarity among many of the businesses listed: they’re built, like Front is, to harness the collective impact of teams working together.

Here are a few brands who are pushing the boundaries of the collaboration space in 2020 and beyond.
