Marc Benioff founded Salesforce.com in 1999 and currently serves as chairman and CEO of that company. Salesforce.com is a leader in enterprise cloud computing and has received a Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Award.
In Behind The Cloud, Marc Benioff explains how he grew his own billion-dollar company.
"The future wasn’t about simply improving on what was already done; it was about being bold enough to make big, sweeping, dramatic changes. With those ideas in mind, I started Salesforce.com with a mission to do enterprise software differently. We wanted to take advantage of a new platform – the Internet – to deliver business applications cheaply through a Web site that was as easy to use as Amazon.com."
"Now, ten years later, our small company is a big one. The few initial employees who gave Salesforce.com everything have grown into a few thousand employees. Revenue has escalated to more than $1 billion a year."
In Behind The Cloud, Marc Benioff demonstrates how you can successfully develop your company to becoming a billion-dollar company.
