Today, I am ecstatic to share that Fairmarkit has been named on Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the world’s Most Innovative Companies for our leadership, excellence and innovation, ranking in the Enterprise category.
Personally, this achievement feels like 10 years of aspiration coming to fruition in under four years. Like many entrepreneurs with big ideas, I’ve been closely following Fast Company’s Most Innovative list, looking to it as the definitive source of organizations that are having the greatest impact on their industries and society. And like most entrepreneurs, it’s long been a dream to see our company someday make the list. Today, I am so proud of the Fairmarkit team for this incredible recognition, but most importantly, I am proud of the hard work, hustle and steadfast determination that got us where we are today.
We started Fairmarkit with the ambitious goal to transform procurement (an area hindered by legacy tech) within enterprises, saving them time, resources and money. We knew we had identified a critical need in the market, but we never could have predicted the sudden urgency the pandemic would bring for efficient cost and supply management. Now, just over three years later, we have customers like Snowflake, Cabot Corporation and Blue KC to our name, and we’re supporting and empowering procurement teams around the world and across a wide breadth of industries - from pharmaceuticals to telecom to insurance and practically everything in between. Moreover, we’ve tripled in revenue over the past three years, and have captured the attention and support of investors like GGV and Insight Partners. It’s been a wild ride, and yet we still have so much more to accomplish. Today’s recognition by Fast Company fills us with energy and enthusiasm for another productive and gritty year ahead.
