VGS Named to Forbes’ 2021 Next Billion-Dollar Startup List

October 12, 2021

VGS is a Forbes 2021 Next Billion-Dollar Startup – WOAH! We’re thrilled to be one of only 25 companies selected for this distinction by Forbes and TrueBridge Capital Partners.

The seventh annual search for venture-backed startups most likely to become unicorns starts with 380 companies who go through financial analysis, as well as founder and investor interviews. VGS’ Zero Data approach and rapid growth secured our spot on the list.

“We’re proud to be acknowledged for the unique approach we bring to data security. Companies want to separate the value of data from the custodianship of data. Enabling them to do so let VGS more than double our customer base last year, with data under management growing more than 1000%,” said Mahmoud Abdelkader, CEO.

And that doesn’t even touch the growth of the organization itself. VGS has increased our workforce by 250% since 2019, and it’s thanks to their hard work and dedication that we were able to grow so much.

We are incredibly proud to be featured in this ranking with other impressive startups, and we’re excited to see what lies ahead for every company involved.

We’re inspired to live up to the challenge laid out and actually become the next billion dollar valuation by helping every organization offload its data security and compliance burden while increasing data value.

Above all, we can’t wait to continue on our mission to turn data from a liability into an asset.
