SurveyMonkey is a web survey[5] development cloud based ([SaaS]) company, founded in 1999 by Ryan Finley.

Company history[edit source | edit]

Founding[edit source | edit]

The company was majority-owned by Ryan and Chris Finley until 2009, when it was sold to a private equity consortium. David Goldberg is SurveyMonkey's current CEO.[citation needed]

In 2010, the company received US$100 million in debt financing from Bank of America Merrill Lynch and SunTrust Robinson Humphrey.[6]

Expansion[edit source | edit]

In 2012, SurveyMonkey had 14 million users.[2]

Acquisitions[edit source | edit]

It has since acquired four other survey tools (Precision Polling, Wufoo, and Zoomerang) as well as a stake in the UK-based Clicktools.[citation needed]

Corporate[edit source | edit]

SurveyMonkey has over 200 employees[when?], with offices in Palo Alto, California; Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; Lisbon, Portugal; São Paulo, Brazil; and Luxembourg.[citation needed]
