DigitalOcean’s co-founders, Ben Uretsky, CEO, and Moisey Uretsky, CPO, have received the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2016 New York Award in the Technology Infrastructure category. The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Award program, now in its 30th year, honors entrepreneurs whose ingenuity, spirit of innovation, and discipline have propelled their companies’ success, invigorated their industries, and benefited their communities.

The “simple, on-demand” platform currently supports more than 700,000 registered customers worldwide, and the company continues to innovate its platform for developers and businesses.
“Our primary goal with DigitalOcean from the beginning has been to simplify the complexities of infrastructure by offering one simple and robust platform for developers to easily launch and scale their businesses and apps,” said Ben Uretsky, co-founder and CEO of DigitalOcean. “It’s an honor to be recognized with this prestigious award, one that wouldn’t be possible without a hard-working and dedicated team of DigitalOcean employees who support and drive our vision.”
DigitalOcean has raised $123 million in funding from Andreessen Horowitz, Access Industries, IA Ventures, CrunchFund, and Techstars. The company is headquartered in New York City with data centers regions located throughout the world.
