Red Herring has selected ScientiaMobile as a winner of the Top 100 North America award, recognizing the leading private startup companies for innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
“At ScientiaMobile, we are on quest to know every device type that has a browser on the planet. We are incredibly honored to be selected for our team’s innovation and operational excellence. The Red Herring award marks a great milestone. And with the Web shifting to a mobile-first paradigm, we are perfectly positioned to grow the Device Intelligence market,” said CEO Krishna Guda.
“In 2015, 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. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the North America winners. We believe ScientiaMobile embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. ScientiaMobile should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Red Herring Top 100 selects award winners from approximately 1,200 companies each year in the US and Canada. Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, intellectual property, the DNA of the founders, business model, customer footprint and addressable market. A review of the track record and standing of these startups relative to their sector peers allowed Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering the most promising new business models. Since 1996, Red Herring has identified up-and-coming companies and were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.
