Company of the Year Win Highlights AppFolio’s Dedication to Supporting Technology and Innovation in the Santa Barbara Community

Santa Barbara, CA – March 27, 2017 – AppFolio, a leading provider of cloud-based business software solutions in the property management and legal markets, has been honored as 2017 Company of the Year by the South Coast Business & Technology Awards Steering Committee.

Initiated in 1995 by local business and industry executives, the South Coast Business & Technology Awards recognize individuals and companies who demonstrate extraordinary commitment to ensuring the economic vitality of Santa Barbara County’s south coast. Each year, local companies participate in the awards reception with proceeds benefiting the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, which funds scholarships for local students who study in the business and technology fields.

Throughout AppFolio’s history of providing technology solutions for property managers (AppFolio Property Manager) and legal practitioners (MyCase), the company has always kept its focus on product innovation, local community, and education.

“We just celebrated our 10-year anniversary and one thing that stands out to me is how we’ve stayed true to our original mission – to provide cloud-based software that revolutionizes the way small and medium-sized businesses operate and compete in the modern economy,” said CEO Brian Donahoo. “We’re honored to receive this award as it not only highlights the great, innovative products we’ve developed for our customers, but it’s also a testament to our commitment to our local community.”

AppFolio employees dedicate time to driving technology education in the local community through various programs including inviting teenagers from organizations such as Dream It, Code It and Girls, Inc. to spend the day with its engineering and product development teams and learn about careers in technology and how they can transform people’s lives. The company also offers internship programs for local students in all areas of the business to gain hands-on experience.
