Santa Monica, California and Villeneuve d’Ascq – December 9, 2013 - Red Herring announced its Top 100 Global award winners in recognition of the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia today, celebrating these start-ups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring’s editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe DelfMEMS embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. DelfMEMS should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”
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 records and standing of start-ups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world.
“We are very honoured to have received the Red Herring Top 100 Global award “ said Guillaume d’Eyssautier, President and CEO of DelfMEMS, “after the Top 100 European award won this year, it confirms that DelfMEMS is becoming a recognized leader in its domain. DelfMEMS, with its disruptive RF MEMS technology, is empowering its customers to provide the best products in the new 4G and future 5G Mobile market."
