With the launch of the KPMG Private Enterprise Global Tech Innovator competition, the search has been on for the leading tech innovators in the U.S. who have the potential to become the next tech titans on the global stage. Nearly 80 companies applied for the chance to be crowned the KPMG Private Enterprise Tech Innovator in the U.S.

Following an intense competition of 10 finalists who delivered their final pitches to a panel of industry experts, one company’s ambitious plan for transforming the technology landscape stood out. 

The 2021 Tech Innovator in the U.S. winner: Vendr

Vendr is forever changing how companies buy and renew SaaS. With over $370+ million in SaaS purchases across 1,000+ suppliers, the Vendr SaaS buying platform enables the world’s fastest-growing companies to purchase SaaS, without friction and at a fair price.

We can’t wait to see Vendr compete with over 17 other countries at the Global Tech Innovator event – to be held at Web Summit in Lisbon this November!
