London & New York, 15 April 2016 – IoT Smart Products Platform pioneer EVRYTHNG announces today that it has been selected as a 2016 Red Herring Top 100 Europe winner.
Red Herring Europe awards recognize Europe’s leading private companies and celebrate their 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. Thousands of the companies most interesting and innovative companies have graced the Top 100 list over the years.
“In 2016, 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 many hundreds of candidates across Europe to the Top 100 Winners. EVRYTHNG embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. EVRYTHNG should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Co-founder and CEO Niall Murphy commented: “Red Herring’s editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Kakao, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube would change the way we live and work, and EVRYTHNG is honored to join this list.”
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 “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Europe.
