With 750,000+ user reviews, 80,000+ products and 1,600+ tech and service
categories, G2 is the world’s largest B2B technology marketplace. Since
its founding, G2 has served a global audience of software buyers and
providers. G2 identified international growth as a key priority for
2019, and in support of that, the company has opened its first
international office in London at 22 Tudor Street.

Commenting on the top 10 companies, Godard Abel, CEO at G2, said, “It’s
fascinating to see a mixture of long-established software providers like
SAP and Sage Software appear alongside younger disrupters like Telegram
and The list also emphasises the international nature of the
software market with companies from countries as diverse as the UK,
Israel, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, and the Czech Republic appearing in
the top 10. It’s a testament to our belief at G2 that we can help all
businesses in their software purchasing decisions, by connecting them to
software platforms and services vendors on a global scale. Our new
London office is an important step toward our goal of becoming the go-to
global marketplace for top software platforms around the world.”

The EMEA market has seen an influx of SaaS companies and over
the next four years the SaaS market is expected to grow at an annual
rate of 25 percent per year
in Europe alone. With its newly
established global presence, G2 aims to better serve its vendor and
buyer communities around the world – particularly those that consider G2
a trusted partner. For European SaaS platforms and services vendors, G2
will focus on providing local support and services, amplifying customer
advocacy within the EMEA region, and leveraging the growth of peer
review adoption by European buyers.

Mark Robinson, co-founder and CMO of UK-based Kimble Applications, said,
“By partnering with G2 over the last four years, we’ve been able to
connect with many buyers seeking a Professional Services Automation
solution like ours. With G2, it’s not about telling people what to buy:
it’s about educating buyers to allow them to make more informed choices
and see through the marketing hype. We’re thrilled to see that G2 is
expanding globally, and I have no doubt that G2 will help more companies
around the world find the best solutions for their business.”

Phillipe Botteri, partner at Accel, said, “The rate at which disruptive
technologies and new services are being released is skyrocketing. With
that comes billions of dollars of waste in unused and underused
software, and the increased challenge of finding the best software for a
business. G2 has established itself as the leading solution for software
reviews and has changed the way businesses around the world optimise
software spend. G2 has had an outsized impact in the industry, and we
look forward to supporting their presence across new regions, such as
Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.”

Concurrent with G2’s expansion, the company has named Henrique Aragao as
VP & General Manager, EMEA to lead the London office. Aragao joins from
Salesforce, where he led sales teams in Europe to 100% YoY growth. Under
Aragao, G2 plans to grow the London office to 15 employees by the end of
