Red Herring Announces Top Candidates for Prestigious Top-100 Awards at Red Herring Europe Conference

Red Herring to Reveal Winners of Red Herring Europe 100 During European Conference, April 23-25, in Amsterdam

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwire - Apr 16, 2012) - Red Herring today announced the finalists of the Red Herring Europe 100 Award, which includes the most promising technology start-ups from all across the European continent. The Red Herring team uses a highly competitive process to select only the most innovative companies from a pool of over 700 applicants. On April 23-25 in Amsterdam, Red Herring will award the top-100 companies with the Red Herring Europe Award; a list of all the contestants can be found online at

Red Herring Europe nominees are truly the best of the best and will be included in the running for the Red Herring Global, competing against companies who placed highly at the Red Herring Asia and North America Awards in 2011 and 2012. This year's Global nominees are rigidly evaluated on quantitative and qualitative criteria; financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration. This assessment is measured by a review of the track record and standing of a company, allowing Red Herring to see past the hype and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering and advocating great business opportunities in the industry.

On April 23-25, 2012, Amsterdam will play host to the Red Herring Europe Conference, an exclusive gathering of regional leaders and small, innovative startups in the technology industry. Red Herring is the premier platform for CEOs and senior executives, and provides participants with one-on-one exchanges and peer-to-peer show and tell opportunities. In addition to announcing the Top 100, the conference will also address market challenges and introduce an outlook for this continuously evolving sector.

Red Herring Europe will bring together more than 200 C-level technology entrepreneurs, corporate strategists, and venture financiers from across the continent.

Red Herring Europe features keynote speeches from industry leaders, roundtable discussions led by CEOs of emerging firms and corporate presentations from CEOs of private technology companies.
