"We are honored to be named to the SMBTech 50 list. [...] This recognition from GGV Capital is testament to the hard work, innovation, and dedication from everyone at ComplYant."
LOS ANGELES, CA, April 25, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- ComplYant®, a digital tax assistant for small business owners, was named to the 2023 SMBTech 50, a list created by GGV Capital in collaboration with Crunchbase and 30 venture capital firms to recognize the growth and potential of startups that serve small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). In celebration of the SMBTech 50 list, company honorees rang the opening bell at the Nasdaq MarketSite today.
The SMBTech 50 list demonstrates both the breadth and depth of the sector and the enthusiasm of venture capital investors for these companies. More than 200 companies were nominated and voted on by top SMBTech venture capital investors to create the SMBTech 50, which represents a mix of early, growth and late-stage private companies.
More than 30 million small businesses in the U.S. represent 44% of GDP, about half of U.S. employment, and more than $180 billion in annual technology spending. The U.S. is also seeing a renaissance of small business and entrepreneurship, with more than 10 million new business applications submitted in 2021 and 2022. GGV Capital's SMBTech 50 list celebrates the private, venture-backed technology companies seeking to make a significant impact on SMBs.
"Public companies in the SMBTech space have grown from just a few billion dollars of market cap to more than $500 billion over the last decade," said Tiffany Luck, Partner at GGV Capital. "Every year, we put together this list of top private companies, and we are blown away by the level of innovation, growth, and impact they are making on the SMB economy. Congratulations to all on making this year's list!"
