More than just buzz

The "Red Herring 100 North America" award is an important part of Red Herring's tradition of recognizing new and innovative technology firms and their entrepreneurial founders. BorderWare Technologies and the other nominees were rigidly evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their ecosystem. This unique assessment of potential complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company allows Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list an invaluable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.

Bringing together the best

As part of this tradition to honor innovation and entrepreneurship in the business of technology, Red Herring will again host "Red Herring Spring," a two day invitation-only summit for the CEOs and founders of the Red Herring 100 winners and finalists in Monterey, California.
