We’re very happy to announce that Peak Ace has been selected as a Finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the European business region.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds of companies across Europe. The nominees are evaluated on 20 main quantitative and qualitative criterions: they include disruptive impact, market footprint, proof of concept, financial performance, technology innovation, social value, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.
“This year was rewarding, beyond all expectations.” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “There are many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products in Europe. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists. Peak Ace shows great promise and therefore deserves to be among the Finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Europe. We know that the 2015 crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact.”
Finalists for the 2015 edition of the Red Herring 100 Europe award are selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition and financial health. During the months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the telecommunications, security, Web 2.0, software, hardware and other industries completed their submissions to qualify for the award.
Bastian Grimm, our president of Organic Search commented: “We never expected it to make it into the Top 100 – this is an incredible achievement already! I’m very excited to present some of our ideas, the company vision and insights to the jury in Amsterdam.”
The Finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Europe Forum in Amsterdam, April 13-15, 2015. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of April 15 at the event.
