Red Herring announced its Red Herring Europe award winners today, recognizing Europe’s leading private companies and celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries, and BrainSINS has been chosen as one of the winners.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring’s 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.
“Selecting startups that show the most potential for disruption and growth is never easy,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “We looked at hundreds and hundreds of candidates from all across the continent, and after much thought and debate, narrowed the list down to the Top 100 Winners. Each year, the competition gets tougher but we believe BrainSINS demonstrates the vision, drive and innovation that define a Red Herring Top 100.”
Francisco Carrero, BrainSINS’ CEO, explains that “the experience of Red Herring has been very good for us. We have meet hundreds of interesting startups and investors that allowed us to learn and share our experiences. Being winners of the Red Herring Top 100 Europe give us an additional reinforcement showing that we are doing a good work“.
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, overall business strategy and market penetration. This assessment was complemented by a review of the track records and standings of similar startups in the same verticals, 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 in Europe.
A few months ago BrainSINS was also selected as Gartner Cool Vendor in eCommerce.
