“It’s awards season in the cloud. While actors and actresses recently took home their Oscars, DocuSign is proud to have been named among Lead411’s 2012 “Hottest Companies in Seattle.” 

DocuSign is one of only 44 Seattle-based businesses to win, selected from 1,130 local companies in the software, wireless, Internet, hardware and media industries. We are thrilled to be recognized among so many great businesses and would like to congratulate all our fellow award recipients.

The Lead411 research team scoured hundreds of press releases and business articles on venture capital financing, company launches, office openings, new customer announcements and more to determine this year’s hottest companies in Seattle.

Tom Blue, CEO of Lead411, had this to say about the third annual Seattle awards: “We are very proud of the respected list of companies for the 2012 winners.”

This has been a great start to what promises to be an even greater year for us, with nominations including AlwaysOn’s OnDemand Global 250, WTIA’s Best Consumer Product/Services of the year and 2012 Appy Award. 

We would like to send a BIG thank you to all our customers, partners and employees who helped us earn these nods of recognition. Your feedback continues to make our product stronger, so that global enterprises, business departments, individual professionals, and consumers finish business faster with the global standard for eSignature. We couldn’t have done it without all of you.
