Workday Ventures: Shaping the Next Generation of Enterprise Technology

In February, Workday announced a $250 million Workday Ventures fund to invest in and partner with companies shaping the next generation of enterprise technology. With Workday Ventures, we want to create new opportunities to connect Workday customers with innovative solutions integrated into Workday’s platform and partnership program.

In line with our own business, these investments focus on business models that serve financial management, human capital management, analytics, security and privacy, platform technologies, collaboration and productivity, and industry solutions. As an investment partner, we help accelerate innovation by connecting them with Workday customers and the broader community while advising them through the different stages of growth. This is good for the portfolio companies and good for our customers who want to sharpen their competitive edge with the revolutionary technologies of these early-stage companies.

That’s why I’m so excited to welcome these inventive companies to our annual Workday Rising conference—truly the best place to connect these companies with the larger Workday community looking for a glimpse into the future of enterprise technology.

So, for those attending, stop by Workday Ventures Booth #908 to meet the following:
