Inclusion on the annual list highlights Anchore’s focus on employees, culture, and growth

Santa Barbara, Calif - March 16, 2022 - Today Anchore announced it was recognized by Forbes with inclusion on their 2022 List of America’s Best Startup Employers. Companies included on the list are rated on multiple areas, including company culture and employee engagement. Anchore was selected out of 2,500 startup companies in the United States that were founded between 2012 and 2019.

“Anchore was founded on three core values of kindness, ownership, and openness. Our goal from the very beginning was to create an inclusive and supportive environment, and we’ve built on those values to create a strong foundation for creativity and innovation,” said Said Ziouani, CEO of Anchore. “We actively invest in our people, our culture, and the community. We're honored to be recognized by Forbes as one of America's best startup employers.”

To be included in the fourth annual Forbes list of America’s Best Startup Employers, each company must have at least 50 employees. Judges graded each startup based on employer reputation, employee satisfaction and company growth. Each startup had to be founded organically and not created out of an existing enterprise to qualify for consideration.

Anchore experienced over 150% growth in ARR from the prior year, as organizations looked to proactively secure their software supply chains against growing exploits. This momentum is supported by new product capabilities, exploding adoption of open source tools, and continued work to proactively prepare its customers for inevitable future breaches and hacks. With this, Anchore’s team has continued to expand and it currently has 80 employees in the United States.
