PocketMobile selected as a 2012 Red Herring Top 100 Europe
Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Now PocketMobile is on the list.
Red Herring announced its Top 100 award in recognition of the leading private companies from Europe, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries. PocketMobile, Europe’s leading mobility platform provider, is now among these 100 most promising companies.
Red Herring 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.
”We are thrilled to be on the Red Herring Top 100 Europe List. To have reached this list is an acknowledgement of our achievements and competence and further strengthens our position on the European market” said Anders Tormod, CEO of PocketMobile. ”The Red Herring Award event was extremely well arranged, a great experience and a good opportunity meet all the other nominees and representatives from Europe’s most promising companies.”
“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 Europe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe PocketMobile embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. PocketMobile 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 record and standing of startups 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 in Europe.
