Dataminr Named to the 2021 Forbes Cloud 100

Dataminr’s inclusion on the list marks another milestone in the company’s continued momentum in 2021. In July 2021, the company acquired WatchKeeper, a real-time data geovisualization platform, on the heels of its Q1 $475 million pre-IPO growth financing, raising its valuation to $4.1 billion. “The companies of the Cloud 100 list represent the best and brightest emerging companies in the cloud sector,” said Alex Konrad, senior editor at Forbes. “Every year, it gets more difficult to make this list — meaning even more elite company for those who do. Congratulations to each of the 2021 Cloud 100 honorees and to our 20 Rising Stars up-and-comers poised to join their ranks.”
