Justin Borgman Honored by Goldman Sachs for Entrepreneurship

Starburst CEO & Co-Founder featured among the most exceptional entrepreneurs at 2022 Builders and Innovators Summit

Boston, MA – October 12, 2022 – Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) is recognizing the Co-founder & CEO of Starburst, Justin Borgman, as one of the Most Exceptional Entrepreneurs of 2022 at its Builders and Innovators Summit in Healdsburg, California. Goldman Sachs selected Borgman from multiple industries to be honored at the two day event.

Before founding Starburst, Borgman was Vice President & GM at Teradata (NYSE: TDC), responsible for the company’s portfolio of Hadoop products. Justin joined Teradata in 2014 via the acquisition of his company Hadapt where he was co-founder and CEO. Hadapt created “SQL on Hadoop” turning Hadoop from a file system to an analytic database accessible by any BI tool. Since its founding in 2017, bootstrapped by Borgman at the onset, Starburst has experienced explosive growth, establishing itself as a leader in the data access and analytics space with a differentiated solution catered to today’s data challenges and realities. 

Under Borgman’s leadership, Starburst has become one of the fastest-growing analytics startups to reach unicorn status, with $414 million in total financing at a $3.35 billion valuation. In the last year, Starburst has grown its employee headcount and customer base by 3x and saw 3x YoY annual recurring revenue (ARR) growth by the end of Q2 2022 while also expanding into new markets in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific. Starburst also made its first acquisition in 2022, debuted on the Inc. 5000, was named one of the top startup employers by Forbes, recently named the 9th highest-valued private company based in Boston.

“It is an honor to be recognized with such an esteemed business leadership award alongside an incredible group of entrepreneurs,” said Justin Borgman. “I accept this award on behalf of the entire Starburst team, our customers, and our partners, who are the real driving force behind our success.”

“We’re delighted to recognize Justin Borgman as one of the most exceptional entrepreneurs of 2022,” said David M. Solomon, Chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs. “[These leaders] have made extraordinary contributions to a wide range of fields, and all of us are looking forward to meeting with these innovative thinkers.”
