StartupGrind Names TranslateNow to Top 100 Companies List

Exhibition Brings Together Elite Group of Entrepreneurs

February 16, 2017 (Palo Alto, Calif.) – TranslateNow, a leader in enterprise translation management, announced today its induction into StartUp Grind’s list of 100 Companies named to the 2017 Class of Startup Exhibitioners. The Startup Exhibition recognizes the top 100 companies handpicked from 80 countries, 200 cities around the world.

“To be chosen among the thousands of talented start-ups around the globe and be recognized as an innovator in translation and localization is incredibly humbling,” says Matt Arney, CEO and Co-Founder of TranslateNow. “Translation is something most companies need – even companies without a global presence – yet most people don’t know anything about the industry. To be selected by StartUp Grind is a real indication that we are disrupting the $40 billion translation industry.”

Startup Grind Startup Exhibition companies are an elite group of companies whose founders range from 16 year-old founders who gained 20,000 paying customers in 2 months to a professional basketball player, to a Medical Director at Yale, to a Resident Neurosurgeon at Duke University Hospital. Startup Exhibition companies are given access to our global audience through media and onsite at annual Global Event ( held February 21st through February 22nd in beautiful historic downtown Redwood City. The exhibition helps companies to accelerate their pace towards growth and success by gaining the visibility of mentors and investors in our network. 

“We started this after seeing many of the Accelerators and Incubators not doing much to really help companies,” says Derek Andersen, founder & CEO of Startup Grind. “We really wanted to make an actual difference in the startups trajectory and leverage all of our resources and network to their advantage.” 

“Of the 6,000 plus startups that were considered, 100 were selected representing the Startup Grind community across 80 countries. These startups have great teams, traction, technology and massive markets,” says Andersen. “Our biggest goal is for each startup to go back home with a new and improved game plan that would not have happened without the exposure of the exhibition and the mentors/resources that were gained through our network.”
