mediaFORGE Named One of Red Herring's Global Top 100 Tech Startups

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Dec 21, 2011) - mediaFORGE, a leading online behavioral targeting company, today announced it has been honored with Red Herring's Global 100 award, which recognizes the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia.

Red Herring's Global 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Google, Skype, Baidu,, YouTube, eBay and many others would change the way we live and work.

"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 down our list from 1,100 potential companies to 100 winners. It was an extremely difficult process. mediaFORGE should be extremely proud of its achievement, the competition for the Top 100 was fierce. The Top 100 Global are truly the best of the best."

mediaFORGE is an innovative leader in the online display advertising industry. Its award-winning technology tracks consumer interactions with its dynamic banner ads, uniquely positioning it to measure how ads influence actual shopping behavior -- a long-time challenge in the online marketing world.

"mediaFORGE is thrilled to be recognized among such an elite group of emerging technology companies," says mediaFORGE CEO, Tony Zito. "We could not be more proud of our company, our team and the vision we are working together to achieve."

Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list an invaluable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the greatest business opportunities from around the world.
