SAN FRANCISCO, June 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Showpad, the world’s most powerful content activation platform, announced today that it’s among Red Herring’s top 100 North America award winners. This prestigious list honors the year’s most promising private technology ventures in North America.
Red Herring Top 100 America selects winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada, representing fields such as security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, life sciences, cloud and mobile. Its editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Google, Skype, Salesforce.com, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“In 2016, selecting the top achievers was extremely difficult,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “The variety, depth, disruption and traction we saw from the early stage companies to those with significant scale made it one of the toughest vintages to judge. The North America winners are representative of the amazing ecosystem that never ceases to astound, with new and experienced entrepreneurs continuing to push the barriers of innovation. As one of the winners, Showpad should be proud of its accomplishment under such strong competition.”
“Showpad is very proud to be recognized as a Red Herring Top 100 North America winner,” said Louis Jonckheere, Showpad’s co-founder and co-CEO. “This recognition is a demonstration of Showpad’s growth and success in the industry, and we’re excited to keep the momentum going as we continue our mission to help companies activate and measure their content more easily and effectively.”
Twenty major criteria defined the scoring process, including a company’s addressable market size, intellectual property and patents, financial health, proof of concept, trailing revenues and management strength. Each company went through an individual interview after filling out a thorough submission, followed up by additional due diligence from the Red Herring panel.
