Thanks for hunting us @kangurkarl! The team at FE International has partnered with SaaS 1000 to put together the official list of the fastest growing SaaS companies in Q2 2018. Congratulations to all of those featured!! Annual lists like Inc 5000 are great but they are not specific for SaaS and are often a year behind. Small companies grow quickly! The key metric we look at is employee growth and the list is completely free to use. Please leave feedback in the comments as we will be here all day. We're already planning on how to make the Q3 list bigger and better.

Data is king and to have a list like this of the top players in SaaS is incredibly valuable. I'm looking forward to this being part of my regular routine.

Pros:

Fantastic tool to keep your finger on the pulse of the movers and shakers in the SaaS industry. Been waiting for something like this!

Cons:

None

Interesting. Why only companies with more than 40 employees?

@danielkempe thanks! We find that once companies hit around 40 employees, they start reporting employee numbers more reliably. Below that it's harder to reliably track and verify the data. For our next list, we're going to test using some different data sources and ways of tracking that data. Ideally we would like small companies to be able to get on this list (say, 10 employees) but right now we can be confident with the accuracy of our data. We also could have used other similar numbers (e.g. 30 or 50). Thanks for the feedback!

This is a massive list, thanks for the huge work on this. Is the data self reported?

@federicojorge thank you very much, the team have been working hard at this for months now :) With regards to data, it is manually researched and pulled from a number of sources to make sure it is as accurate as possible. It will be difficult to make it 100% accurate, particularly as head count can change so quickly in small companies (hence why we do the list quarterly, not yearly) but we have found it is more accurate than letting companies tell us themselves and not verifying.
