Napatech Receives Red Herring Global 100 Award
News Release from:
20 January 2010
Napatech has been selected as one of the top 100 private companies in North America, Europe and Asia by Red Herring. This follows Napatech's selection for a Red Herring Top 100 Europe award in April 2009. Napatech received the Red Herring Global 100 award in recognition of the superior innovation, technology and financial performance that Napatech has exemplified.
“Choosing the best out of the previous three years was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO 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. The top 100 companies who were chosen should be extremely proud, the competition was difficult.”
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, Yahoo, Skype, Netscape, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“We were thrilled to win the Red Herring Top 100 Europe award last year, but winning the Red Herring Global 100 award takes Napatech into a unique league of a few global innovative Companies”, said Henrik Brill Jensen, CEO of Napatech. “We are very proud to receive this prestigious award and will use it as an inspiration to strive to reach the high standards and success achieved by previous renowned winners”.
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.
