New York, 24th November 2014; Perseus Telecom, the leading provider of high-speed global connectivity, announced today that it has been selected as one of this year's Red Herring 100 Global Winners.
The Red Herring Top 100 Global award highlights the most exciting startups from Asia, Europe and the Americas, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries. Hundreds of companies from each region are reviewed in a rigorous 3-step process that looks at all aspects of the company.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Global 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 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 Perseus embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Perseus should be proud of its accomplishment.”
“The Red Herring Top 100 Global has become a highly coveted recognition that recognizes innovation and creativity across a number of industries, and we are incredibly excited to be named as part of this year’s list,” said Dr Jock Percy, CEO of Perseus. “This award adds to what has already been a great year for Perseus.”
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.
