BOSTON- Drift, the world’s leading conversational marketing and sales platform, has been named SaaS/Software Company of the year at the 2018 NEVY Awards hosted by the New England Venture Capital Association. Held annually since 2013, the “NEVYs” recognize the top innovators, investors, and companies in the region.

Drift was also recently named a finalist for the Boston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work 2018 award, which honors the companies creating the most enjoyable, meaningful, and motivating work environments in the Boston area based on anonymous feedback provided by employees.

“These awards are all about the people here at Drift,” said Drift CEO David Cancel. “We are fortunate to have attracted a group of smart, motivated, and passionate people who want to get better every day. They love their work, have fun doing it, and focus on delivering value for our customers daily — but this is just the beginning. We’re growing fast and have plans to add over 100 people by the end of 2018. We are building a pillar company and want Drift to be the place people are proud to be from here in Boston. There’s a long journey ahead, but these awards let me know that we’re heading down the right path.”
