What Does the Red Herring Award Represent?
Since 1996, technology industry executives, investors, and strategists have valued the Red Herring 100 lists as an instrument for discovering and advocating the most promising private ventures from around the world.
The Red Herring Top 100 award highlights the most exciting startups from Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Hundreds of companies from each region are reviewed in the rigorous 3-step process that looks at all aspects of the company.
It is a great privilege to be included in the list, among leading international companies
Upon receiving the award, the chairman of Red Herring, Alex Vieux, told the audience that BreezoMeter is one of those companies that in a few years people will say, “This is so life changing! Why wasn’t it invented earlier?!”
This is yet another validation of BreezoMeter’s innovative technology, and an opportunity to say a big thank you to all of our customers, investors, and team members for their commitment to improving the health of billions of people, through actionable, intuitive environmental data.
BreezoMeter was Chosen as a 2019 Red Herring Top 100 Europe Winner
Feb 20, 2019; Amsterdam, Netherlands – Red Herring announced its Top 100 Europe award winners this evening at the Top 100 forum, recognizing Europe’s leading private companies and celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring Top 100 Europe enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the European Region. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring’s Top 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring’s editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Alibaba, Facebook, Google, SalesForce.com, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube would change the way we live and work. Thousands of the most interesting and innovative companies have graced the Top 100 list over the years.
“In 2019, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher, and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early in the European tech ecosystem. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Europe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe BreezoMeter embodies the vision, drive, and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. BreezoMeter should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, overall business strategy, and market penetration. This assessment was complemented by a review of the track records and standings of similar startups in the same verticals, allowing Red Herring to see past the “hype” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Europe.
Following BreezoMeter’s well-deserved win, they are invited to showcase their company to the US market at the Top 100 North America event in May and later compete internationally for the Top 100 Global in October. Red Herring is dedicated to following BreezoMeter’s path to further success and innovation.
