Excitement around Zoom [ZM] peaked on April 18 with its Nasdaq IPO opening. Founded in 2011, Zoom has caught the attention of Silicon Valley with its remarkable year-on-year growth and rapid rise to profitable unicorn status.

As reported by CNBC, “Zoom has surged in popularity in a crowded market by providing software that works easily across devices and by groups ranging from small teams to large enterprises. Sales jumped 118 percent last year to $330.5 million, and the company reported a net income of $7.58 million.”

In 2017, Eric was added to the Business Insider list of the 52 Most Powerful People in Enterprise Tech. In 2018, he was named the #1 CEO of a large US company by Glassdoor as well as the EY Entrepreneur of the Year in Northern California (software category).
