Goldman Sachs has recognized Samir Bodas, CEO and Co-founder of Icertis, as one of the Most Exceptional Entrepreneurs of 2023 at its Builders and Innovators Summit in Healdsburg, California.
Goldman Sachs, a global leader in financial services, selected Samir from entrepreneurs across multiple industries to be honored at the two-day event.
With over two decades of leadership in high-growth, category-defining companies, Samir, alongside Co-founder and CTO, Monish Darda, firmly established Icertis as the undisputed leader in the $30 billion contract lifecycle management (CLM) category. Today, Icertis is trusted by 30% of the Fortune 100 to deliver AI-powered contract intelligence and recognized as one of the Fastest Growing Companies in the Americas, according to the Financial Times.
Samir’s leadership is guided by Icertis’ FORTE values—Fairness, Openness, Respect, Teamwork, and Execution. With a value-driven approach to doing business, Icertis empowers customers to realize the full intent and higher purpose of every contract so they can build trust, strengthen bonds, and create a better world.
Icertis is on a remarkable journey of innovation and growth. In a recent press release, Samir stated, “Icertis surpassed $200 million in annual recurring revenue in 2022, growing at over 40% year-over-year, and we are uniquely positioned to transform the foundation of commerce with contract intelligence as we continue to build a consequential and enduring company.” He adds that by applying proprietary and generative AI to contracts and incorporating contract data into core business processes to surface insights, Icertis enables enterprises to manage the full lifecycle of every commercial relationship and achieve outcomes around revenue, costs, compliance, and risk.
“We’re delighted to recognize Samir as one of the most exceptional entrepreneurs of 2023,” said David Solomon, Chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs. “Like everyone in this year’s class, Samir has been a visionary in his field, pushing forward innovation and redefining markets. We are excited to harness Goldman’s convening power to bring together these dynamic leaders and hear their insights.”
In addition to honoring the most exceptional entrepreneurs, the Summit consists of general sessions and clinics led by seasoned entrepreneurs, academics, and business leaders, as well as resident scholars.
