Red Herring Unveils Global 100 of Tech Startups
Santa Monica, California - Red Herring announced its Global 100 award in recognition of the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
“Choosing the best out of the previous three years was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed down our list from 1,200 potential companies to 200 finalists. Trying to get it down to 100 companies was a task upon itself. MoSync should be extremely proud of its achievement, the competition was difficult.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list an invaluable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the greatest business opportunities from around the world.
Red Herring’s Global 100 list has become a mark of distinction for
identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring
editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Google,
Skype, Netscape, Salesforce.com, YouTube, eBay and many others would
change the way we live and work.
