Sponsored by Businesswire

, the leader in cloud data protection and management, today
announced that Jaspreet Singh, founder and CEO, is a finalist for the EY
Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Award in the Northern
California region. Widely considered one of the most prestigious
business awards programs in the U.S., it recognizes entrepreneurs and
leaders of high-growth companies who excel in areas such as innovation,
financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and
communities, while also investing in the local community.

Founding Druva, Singh and his co-founders recognized the need for a new
data protection solution that would eliminate the reliance on
unnecessary hardware, capacity planning and software management. As
organizations increasingly transform their business with cloud, Druva
delivers data protection and management across endpoint, data center and
cloud workloads, which eliminates the dependence on complex
infrastructure and time-consuming administration while cutting costs by
more than 50 percent. In addition to recognizing the cloud era to come,
Singh’s entrepreneurial spirit enabled him to bootstrap Druva, which has
now raised almost $200M in venture funding from some of today’s most
recognizable firms, including Sequoia Capital, Tenaya Capital, Riverwood
Capital and Nexus Partners.

“Druva started as a dream, and now helps more than 4,000 customers
accelerate growth and make critical business decisions through an
innovative and powerful SaaS solution,” said Singh. “The entrepreneurial
spirit that drove me a decade ago has been present ever since and has
become part of the company culture as we look for innovative ways to
help customers protect and manage their most valuable asset – data. I’m
humbled by this recognition from EY, and it is a testament to the hard
work and dedication of every person at Druva.”

Now in its 33rd year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program
has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities and
more than 60 countries throughout the world. Singh was selected as a
finalist by a panel of independent judges, and award winners will be
announced at a special black-tie gala event on Friday, June 21 at the
Fairmont San Jose. Regional award winners are eligible for consideration
for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National competition.
