Xstream announced that it has been selected as a candidate for Red Herring's 2013 Top 100 Global award, a prestigious recognition honouring the year’s most audacious and far reaching private technology companies and entrepreneurs from across the globe.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the companies demonstrating the most innovative technologies and business models originating from over 1000 companies from over 40 nations.

An unprecedented number of entrepreneurs are jumping ahead of the competition and making a difference. Breakthroughs obsolete each other faster than ever before.
