SaaS Markets (, a global leading business app store provider, has been named one of the 10 Coolest Cloud Startups of 2013 by CRN Magazine. CRN’s list examines the most innovative startups that are actively engaged in building markets of the future or transforming existing ones. The article, which was published on July 15th, has been trending online through various social media outlets.

Since the beginning of 2013, SaaS Markets has expanded its customer base to include client relationships in the financial services, telecommunications, and other enterprise markets. Each branded app store, based on SaaS Markets’ MarketMaker platform, offers more than 1,500 pre-qualified, cloud-based applications designed to help companies overcome an array of business challenges. Currently, SaaS Markets has over 50 live app stores around the world, and the traffic on the SaaS Markets-powered SaaS Commerce Network continues to increase month-over-month.

“2013 has been a banner year for SaaS Markets and CRN’s recognition of our success is another key milestone,” said Ferdi Roberts, Founder and CEO of SaaS Markets. “The SaaS application growth trend for enterprises is expected to grow significantly in the coming years, which will fuel our growth as we expand our business partnerships and provide enterprises with powerful, easy-to-use business software via the app stores we build.” In fact, Gartner recently predicted that, by 2017, one in four large organizations will have their own app store, while ABI Research forecasted that enterprise app store adoption is expected to increase 30.4% year over year.

The coming weeks will be very busy for SaaS Markets, as they participate in an array of industry trade shows, including: XChange 2013, the Cloud4SMB Expo, and the GFI Max US Conference. In addition, SaaS Markets CEO, Ferdi Roberts, has been selected to present at Finovate Fall 2013—a leading banking and financial technology conference in New York City.
