The Journey of Salesforce towards $10 Billion Empire
Salesforce, which started its life in March 1999 in a one-bedroom apartment, is now worth $134.16B. The three men – Parker Harris, Frank Dominguez, and Dave Moellenhoff started working in this tiny office along with Marc Benioff. The goal of these pioneers was to create business software applications in an entirely new way, to deliver software through a model, now famously known as Software-as-a-Service.
Since its inception, Salesforce has built several useful tools for the industries globally. Also, it has acquired many companies with a big focus towards AI and predictive analysis. Salesforce.com’s successes are quite impressive, but their impact on the community is even more. Through their 1/1/1 model, the company has donated several millions of dollars to charities around the globe. With its ground-breaking and thoughtful approach, Salesforce remained popular in the globe that is now packed with competitors.
Take a look at their success story to learn how Salesforce disrupted the market of on-premise software providers with its innovative plan that no one has ever thought of before.
If you are a startup and searching for a way to grow out as a successful establishment, Salesforce can serve as an excellent example. Many years into this sector, the company’s continued growth is tremendous. Along with revolutionizing the products and offering more cloud solution, Salesforce has projected to remain as an influential voice for responsible capitalism of generating money and giving it back to the public at the same time. It has been the playbook of the company and brought users the most benefit over the last 18 years.
