Very Good Security (VGS) Honored by Goldman Sachs for Entrepreneurship

12:00 pm ET October 14, 2021 (BusinessWire) Print

Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) is recognizing VGS co-founder and CEO Mahmoud Abdelkader as one of the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs of 2021 at its Builders + Innovators Summit in Healdsburg, California.

Goldman Sachs selected Abdelkader as one of 100 entrepreneurs from multiple industries to be honored at the two-day event. With experience ranging from Wall Street to early-stage startups, Abdelkader is a highly skilled engineer and the heart of VGS. Prior to founding VGS, Abdelkader was CTO and co-founder of Balanced Payments (exited to Stripe). Before that, he designed automated product matching systems at (acquired by eBay) and built high-frequency trading systems for Wachovia Securities, now a part of Wells Fargo. He's passionate about democratizing data security and started Very Good Security in 2016 to make best-in-class security and compliance attainable for businesses of all sizes.

"I'm incredibly honored to be recognized by Goldman Sachs among some of today's most innovative business leaders," said Abdelkader. "I co-founded VGS because I truly believed we could help lift the burden that companies of all sizes shoulder in protecting their data so they can focus on building thriving businesses. From launching new products and broadly expanding our customer base to growing our executive bench, we've had an amazing year, and the success of this mission is only possible with our brilliant team -- so I'd like to thank them for all their ingenuity and hard work."

"Innovation doesn't happen just anywhere; it thrives where there's a wide range of thoughts and perspectives," said David M. Solomon, Chairman & CEO of Goldman Sachs. "One of our great strengths is our ability to bring together people from different walks of life and to spark conversations today that will lead to breakthroughs tomorrow. The leaders we've chosen to highlight at our Builders + Innovators Summit are truly remarkable, and we are pleased to recognize Mahmoud as one of this year's most intriguing entrepreneurs."

In addition to honoring 100 entrepreneurs, the summit consists of general sessions and clinics led by seasoned entrepreneurs, academics and business leaders as well as resident scholars.
