Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the winners of the regional Top 100 contests in Asia, Europe and America. They focused on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration.
This assessment was set in perspective by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers
“Choosing the best out of the previous two years was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list from 1,100 potential companies down to 100 winners. Xena Networks should be extremely proud of its achievement; the Top 100 Global truly are the best of the best.”
