Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) is recognizing Applause CEO and Founder Doron Reuveni as one of the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs of 2018 at its Builders + Innovators Summit in Santa Barbara, California.

Goldman Sachs selected Doron as one of 100 entrepreneurs from multiple industries to be honored at the three-day event. With more than 25 years' experience, Doron is an internationally-recognized expert in software development and testing and the driving force behind one of the fastest growing tech companies in New England. Under Doron’s leadership, Applause became the worldwide leader in crowdsourced digital quality and was acquired by Vista Equity Partners, a top investment firm focused on software, data and technology-enabled businesses.

Prior to Applause, Doron was the CEO and owner of Re.D Consulting, where he advised enterprise firms on their go-to-market strategies, company direction, and product roadmaps. He also served as SVP of Technology at Enigma, where he led multi-million dollar software implementations and managed a global team of professional software engineers, testers and project managers.

“I’m honored to be recognized alongside all these innovative companies and entrepreneurs,” said Doron Reuveni. “Applause has had an incredible year of high growth. We’ve served thousands of customers like Google, FOX, the NFL and Amazon, expanded our solutions for voice recognition, AI and automation, and increased our community to more than 400,000 experts. This award is another testament to our success and I’m pleased that Applause is continuing to be recognized for delivering flawless digital experiences to the world.”

“A dynamic economy depends on dynamic entrepreneurs who disrupt industries and occasionally give birth to entirely new sectors,” said David M. Solomon, Chief Executive Officer of Goldman Sachs. “The purpose of Builders + Innovators is to support emerging leaders in their quests to innovate faster in order to grow their ideas. We are pleased to recognize Doron as one of the most intriguing entrepreneurs of 2018.”
