Software has become the backbone of the economy. From large enterprises to small businesses, most companies rely on software whether for accounting, marketing, sales, supply chain, or a myriad of other functions. “Being listed as one of the top 100 software companies of 2021 is a true honor for the whole team. Founded in 2010, Pipedrive has always had the mission of supporting SMBs in their endeavours to digitize their businesses and meet the company’s goals. As a result, we have grown together with our customers from a single tool to an intuitive, easy-to-use, and powerful multiproduct for sales and marketing teams. Last year, Pipedrive crossed several important milestones, and we have ambitious product development plans for this year as well,” said Sergei Anikin, Interim Co-CEO & CTO, Pipedrive.
The year 2020 marked several milestones for the company. In September 2020, Pipedrive unveiled a comprehensive new lead generation and management toolset LeadBooster 2.0 that includes Prospector, which gives users the ability to search a unique B2B database of 400 million business profiles for high-quality outbound leads; a highly customizable Chatbot that engages with web traffic 24/7; Live Chat to help sales reps qualify leads in real-time; intuitive and shareable Web Forms to capture web browsers’ vital lead data; and an add-on called Web Visitors for monitoring web activity. Later in 2020, Pipedrive announced a major investment from Vista Equity Partners, a leading global investment firm focused on enterprise software, data and technology-enabled businesses, becoming the fifth Estonian-founded unicorn.

Among the key criteria considered were software product quality, management team caliber, organizational culture, and overall company evolution among other factors. The annual list of The Top 100 Software Companies was created by The Software Report. The full list of all awardees is available here.
