BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LinkSquares, provider of the fastest and most comprehensive AI-powered contract lifecycle management and analysis tool, today announced the company and its CEO recently received prestigious business honors. The awards come in the wake of LinkSquares’ over 1,000% growth over the past two years, a period that attracted hundreds of new customers including such notable names as Fitbit, TGI Fridays, Twilio and Wayfair.
Ernst & Young LLP (EY) named LinkSquares CEO and Co-founder, Vishal Sunak, an Entrepreneur of The Year® 2021 New England Award finalist. Now in its 35th year, the program “celebrates the unstoppable entrepreneurs whose unbounded ambitions deliver innovation, growth and prosperity that transform our world.” It’s the second consecutive nod for Sunak, who grew LinkSquares from zero to nearly 100 employees and raised over $21 million in funding in just over five years, despite a crowded contract lifecycle management (CLM) space of more than 400 vendors. Award winners will be announced during a virtual event scheduled for July 28.
The Boston Business Journal (BBJ) selected LinkSquares as a finalist for its 2021 Best Places to Work. The exclusive annual ranking highlights Massachusetts-based companies that have built outstanding work environments for their people. The BBJ, the region’s premier business media organization, worked with partner Quantum Workplace to survey employees on key issues including work-life balance, job satisfaction, advancement opportunities, management, compensation and benefits. A Best Places to Work special publication is scheduled for publication in the June 18th Weekly Edition of the BBJ.
