This annual list, previously known as CRN Emerging Vendors, recognizes fast-rising technology manufacturers committed to delivering leading-edge solutions that propel innovation and growth in the IT channel.
Companies on the 2023 Stellar Startups list are all six years old or younger. They are selected across categories including artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), application development/DevOps, big data, business applications, cloud, data center, Internet of Things (IoT), networking/unified communications, security, and storage.
Steve Greenberg, CEO of Tessell partner, Thin Client Computing, provided the following statement to CRN that indicates why CRN chose Tessell for the Stellar Startups award:
“Tessell heralds a revolution in achieving higher performance at lower costs, offering an improved approach to data management in the cloud. While true game changers are rare in the IT landscape, Tessell is undeniably one of them. Our initial customer experiences have been transformative, and we eagerly anticipate extending this model to the broader industry in the years ahead.”
The technology vendors featured on the CRN 2023 Stellar Startups list have a deep understanding of the unique needs of the IT industry, enabling solution providers to overcome complicated market challenges, increase bottom-line revenue, and deliver solutions that will ensure the IT channel’s continued success.
“With the 2023 Stellar Startups list, CRN spotlights emerging technology vendors creating groundbreaking products that support customer and solution provider success in the ever-changing IT channel,” said Jennifer Follett, vice president of U.S. Content and Executive Editor of CRN at The Channel Company. “As a trusted industry resource, the Stellar Startups list empowers solution providers with exclusive insights into the latest cutting-edge IT channel technologies.”

Kaplan highlighted that it’s a rare occasion for a burgeoning young company to not only enhance capabilities in a broad industry category such as data but also significantly reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for operating databases. “Our channel partners are increasingly recognizing the extraordinary value that Tessell offers for their clients,” Kaplan added.
