Accel names Humio a Top 100 European SaaS company

Humio honored as a growing cloud company.

We’re proud to announce that the Accel venture capital firm has named Humio one of the Top 100 European SaaS companies!

Accel first shared their 2019 list of top companies at this year’s SaaStock in Dublin. Chosen in the developers/infrastructure/automation category, Humio is honored to be picked from a field of more than 1,500 qualifying cloud companies.

Accel’s criteria

Each year Accel makes a list of top companies they expect to grow who have revenue between $1 million and $50 million-plus ARR. They choose based on market attractiveness, level of technology differentiation, strength of the team, and initial traction (monthly recurring revenues and growth in number of employees). Accel also worked with G2 to incorporate customer feedback into their process.

Humio is ready to grow

Past Top 100 recipients have shown tremendous growth. Companies from Accel’s 2017 Top 100 list have raised $4.6 billion, resulting in seven new billion-dollar startups.

Positioned as a paradigm-shifting log management software that costs a fraction of other popular options, Humio is prepared for rapid growth. Based on CPU savings from not indexing its databases and from compressing data, Humio also offers attractive increases in performance including unlimited ingest and real-time streaming data query.

The rise of European SaaS

Humio is part of a larger growth of European SaaS companies that are outpacing US growth. Venture investment in European SaaS has more than doubled in the last three years, going from $2 billion in 2016 to $5 billion in 2019.
