Over the past few months, the enterprise tech market has seen its share of successful IPOs and billion-dollar valuations.
Although Box CEO Aaron Levie and others have been calling enterprise tech sexy for years, it’s great to see these founders and startups get some much-deserved recognition. That’s because, as New York enterprise startup founder Ben Sesser notes, “It’s damn hard to build an enterprise startup.”
In New York City alone this past year, we’ve seen the government launch a B2B accelerator, the New York Enterprise Tech Meetup doubling to over 2,500 members, and MongoDB raising an enormous $150 million round at a $1.2 billion valuation, making them the highest valued Internet startup in New York City.
