Geek of the Week: Rob Bernshteyn

Last month we launched a feature called Geek of the Week. Every week, CloudWedge will nominate a ‘Geek of the week’ to any cloud leader who has been in the news in the last week that we feel deserves special mention or praise.

We are happy to announce this weeks’ Geek of the Week is Rob Bernshteyn, Chief Executive Officer of Coupa. We have awarded him with this honor because of how blown away we were with Coupa’s achievement of raising $40 Million in 48 hours. Rob is responsible for Coupa’s strategy and execution.

According to the Coupa website, since 2009 he has driven Coupa to a revenue growth of 100% with a 95% customer renewal rate for four consecutive years. Rob holds a BS in Information Systems and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He has over 18 years of experience in the industry. He is also a guest lecturer at Harvard and Stanford business schools, and a frequent contributor to Forbes and Fortune magazines.
