Red Herring Top 100 North America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. The Top 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluates the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, overall business strategy and market penetration.
We are extremely proud over this recognition and acknowledging the competition of many Silicon Valley based companies, said Håkan Dackefjord, CEO, Wittra Sweden AB
Red Herring’s editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Kakao, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube would change the way we live and work. Thousands of the most interesting and innovative companies have graced the Top 100 list over the years.
