Okta's startup picks

Every year Okta publishes a report on the fastest growing apps used by their customers, and it’s a great crystal ball for startups.


For example, Slack and Zoom have both been #1 apps in past years (2014-2016). In 2017, Jamf was named Okta’s fastest growing app, and it was acquired by Vista Equity Partners a month later. In 2018, KnowBe4 raised a $300M Series C a few months after appearing in the #1 spot…


And this year’s #1 fastest growing app is Snowflake! ❄️ Congrats!
