An enabler of subscription-based billing, Zuora is a big deal in the B2C space.

Rao abandoned positions at top companies Salesforce and Webex to pursue this idea. Creators of the Subscription Economy, these innovators are responsible for shifting the world’s focus from delivering services to delivering products. Their 400 employees are located at their headquarters in Foster City, California, and at satellite offices in various locations in China, Europe, and North America
