 The Forbes Cloud 100 submissions were accepted during May 2021. Nominated companies submit qualitative and quantitative data (within given ranges) to generate a financial score considering the companies’ valuation, revenue, and growth rate. The financial score is then factored in alongside a people and culture score using third-party data providers, and a market leadership score determined by several dozen of the list nominees’ public CEO peers, who are no longer eligible for the list themselves.
