Peak Ace AG was selected as a Red Herring Top 100 Global at the 2016 Red Herring Global event in Marina Del Rey (California) last week. Red Herring announced its Top 100 Global in recognition of the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Bastian Grimm, Director Organic Search at Peak Ace:
“This award means a lot to us. The competition among tech companies on a global level is very, very strong. The fact that we – one of only two German companies – managed to be among the Top 100 out of several hundred entries is a sensational achievement. I would especially like to thank our team, who made the whole thing possible by their commitment and their great work. Thank you!”
Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. 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.
“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 the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Peak Ace AG embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Peak Ace AG should be proud of its accomplishment.”
Why Peak Ace was named a winner at the Global Red Herring Top 100 Awards
Besides its core business Performance Marketing, Peak Ace is developing and maintaining two dedicated software stacks: a PPC solution with integrated live reporting, bid management, and a search query optimizer as well as our second in-house solution for SEO & Content Marketing which provides the necessary tools to manage campaigns and workflow and at the same time allows for controlling and reporting on agency level. The fact that both solutions can be used internationally and that they are more effective and thus more cost-efficient than all the other tools on the market so far was a decisive argument for our innovative strength, which convinced the expert jury.
About the Red Herring Top 100 Global Awards
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 records 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 from around the world.
After a multi-stage selection process, those who made it through to the short list were allowed to pitch details about their strategy and corporate vision to a jury of financial investors. The winners were announced in a festive gala.
