Last month, Amperity launched Amperity 4.0, the latest evolution of its award-winning CDP platform with enhanced features that enable customers to tackle new challenges. These include the death of the third-party cookie; increasing consumer demand for real-time, personalized experiences; and internal teams' desire to collaborate on enterprise-wide customer data initiatives with modern, easy-to-use technology that doesn't acrifice data governance. The company serves many of the world's most-loved brands, including Patagonia, Alaska Airlines, Lucky Brand, Crocs, J. Crew, Brooks Running, Seattle Sounders FC, and many more.

"I'm humbled to be recognized for the work we are doing to help brands better know their customers to provide more personalized experiences at scale," said Kabir Shahani, CEO and co-founder at Amperity. "It's also a privilege to stand alongside other entrepreneurs whom I greatly respect and who are each working to transform their respective industries and help customers in new and innovative ways."

"Innovation doesn't happen just anywhere; it thrives where there's a wide range of thoughts and perspectives," said David M. Solomon, Chairman & CEO of Goldman Sachs. "One of our great strengths is our ability to bring together people from different walks of life and to spark conversations today that will lead to breakthroughs tomorrow. The leaders we've chosen to highlight at our Builders + Innovators Summit are truly remarkable, and we are pleased to recognize Kabir as one of this year's most intriguing entrepreneurs."
