Propel Recognized as Hot 100 on JMP Securities' 2020 List of the Best Privately Held Software Companies

​​Propel, the only product success platform built in the cloud, has been named one of the “Hot 100” privately held software companies by JMP Securities, a premier full-service investment bank. The list is compiled each year based on multiple criteria, including financial growth, products and services, quality of leadership, customer traction and market potential.

“Propel is proud to be included in this year’s JMP Securities’ Hot 100. Transparency and seamless collaboration offered by our platform to each stakeholder of the entire product value chain are key to addressing specific business needs and extending true product success,” said Ray Hein, CEO of Propel. “We are honored to share the list with other great companies and innovators who are transforming businesses and exceeding customer expectations in their own unique ways,” he further added.
