Echopass CEO Vincent Deschamps to Participate on Red Herring 100 Alumni Keynote Panel

Previous Red Herring 100 Winner Will Share His Insights on the Factors That Propel a Successful Startup; Panel Participants Include Echopass, Biveo, Habeas, Mayfield and Qualys

PLEASANTON, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 30, 2007 -- Echopass CEO Vincent Deschamps will offer his insights on the key ingredients that drive the growth of a successful startup during a keynote panel addressing over 400 CEOs, venture investors, government officials and senior corporate business-development executives at the annual Red Herring Spring 07 conference in Monterrey, California. This year's conference, which kicks off tomorrow, marks the 10-year anniversary of the Red Herring 100 Awards. As part of the 10th anniversary celebration, select past Red Herring 100 winners, such as Echopass, have been invited to share formulas for success achieved in the years following winning their Red Herring award.

Red Herring editors say that in choosing the Red Herring 100 list, "this isn't the hall of fame -- we're looking for the Rookie of the Year." Over the years, some of these "rookies" have turned into superstars that have moved markets, and created entirely new ones. As a Red Herring 100 award alumni and provider of innovative hosted call and contact center services, Echopass stands as an example of one of the companies not just standing, but growing and thriving with customers such as American Express, Kodak, Apple, Public Storage, and numerous other enterprises and government agencies. Only Echopass delivers the promise of on-demand, always on, guaranteed, and end-to-end contact center solutions that are completely VoIP-based and both affordable and fully integrated with client's existing customer contact applications and voice or data technologies.

"Echopass has continued to mature and excel in serving our customer base since being recognized on the distinguished Red Herring 100 list in 2004," said CEO Vincent Deschamps. "We're honored that Red Herring has recognized our continued success by inviting us to share our leadership perspectives with this year's attendees."

The keynote roundtable, "Red Herring 100 Alumni" will take place on Wednesday, May 2 from 2:15-3:00PM at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Monterrey, California. Panelists will evaluate and comment on what separates the good startups from the great ones and address reasons some companies get stuck in either neutral or reverse gear while others shift into high speed growth and acceleration.
