Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) is recognizing Jyoti Bansal, founder and CEO of AppDynamics, as one of the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs at its third annual Builders + Innovators Summit being held October 15th – 17th in Santa Barbara.
Bansal, a Silicon Valley product visionary and innovator, founded AppDynamics in 2008 to serve the burgeoning number of “software-defined businesses” that depend on complex applications and infrastructure to serve their customers and bring in revenue. Bansal recognized that visibility into every line of that software is critical to ensuring the performance not just of the applications, but of the business itself. And so he created the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform, which can, with extreme speed and minimal overhead, offer complete visibility into an enterprise’s entire application infrastructure, and harvest critical business data from it. The platform is currently disrupting the multi-billion dollar application performance management (APM) market and fueling stratospheric growth for AppDynamics, which in six short years has grown to nearly 500 employees serving more than 1,400 enterprises worldwide.
Bansal was selected by Forbes in 2013 as a “Best Cloud Computing CEO to Work For.” In 2014, he was named “Best CEO” by the San Francisco Business Times at the Annual Tech & Innovation Awards, and was an EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2014 Award Finalist in Northern California.
“It is humbling to be included in this prestigious cohort of entrepreneurs,” Bansal said, “Truly, I am here thanks to the drive, dedication, and brainpower of my incredibly talented colleagues at AppDynamics. I am fortunate to be standing at the helm of an amazing organization where everyone is committed to disruptive growth, pushing the boundaries of what is possible for this industry. We’ve already done so much but really, we’re just getting started.”
"We are honored to recognize Jyoti Bansal of AppDynamics as one of the most intriguing entrepreneurs of 2014," said David Solomon, co-head of investment banking at Goldman Sachs. "This is the third year for the summit, and we continue to be amazed by what happens when a diverse group of seasoned and emerging entrepreneurs — the builders and innovators — come together to discuss how to drive innovation, create jobs, and build enduring organizations.”
For more than 140 years, Goldman Sachs has been advising and financing entrepreneurs as they launch and grow their businesses. In addition to honoring 100 entrepreneurs, the summit consists of general sessions and clinics led by Goldman Sachs experts, seasoned entrepreneurs, academics and business leaders, as well as resident scholars.
