About the Cloud Index

In 2013, we launched the BVP Cloud Index, which became the benchmark for the rapidly expanding universe of public cloud computing companies. In 2018, we partnered with Nasdaq to form the next generation of our cloud index: the BVP Nasdaq Emerging Cloud Index, listed as EMCLOUD. With one of the largest cloud portfolios in venture capital, Bessemer has been at the forefront of investing in cloud companies over the past two decades.
