64 Companies. 1 Champion. You decide.

We're huge March Madness fans here at Ambition. And this year, for the first time ever, we're looking to bring the energy and excitement of the ultimate annual sporting event (sorry Super Bowl) to our own industry, by hosting the first-ever March SaaSness tournament.

How It Works

Our Selection Committee has picked 64 of the top SaaS Business Solutions to go head to head in a massive bracket we've created. After selecting the initial 64 companies, we seeded them using the most objective metric possible: Number of twitter followers. (Note: Final seeding was determined based on Twitter followers during the first week of March -- if you have since jumped higher, too bad).

What we came up with is an epic field of elite software businesses, competing in a six-round tournament where YOU decide the winner of each matchup. 

Each day that teams are competing, voters will have from 9 am -9 pm EST to vote via Google Forms for a winner in each matchup. At the end of the day, we will announce who will be moving on to the next round from that group of matchups.

The Field

The following is a list of the 64 companies who made this year's field, organized by seeding. We've selected the top tools in sales, marketing, customer success and organizational communication. Each company's twitter follower count is noted next to it. 

The Matchups

We've listed all of our First Round matchups below. The games will begin on Thursday, March 19 at 9 am EST -- half the field will be competing on Thursday, the other half will be competing on Friday.
