This award honors the year’s most promising private technology companies from all throughout Europe.
The finalists for the 2012 Red Herring 100 Europe Awards were selected by the editorial team. As the award Website states these companies are “the most innovative and promising companies from a pool of hundreds across Europe”. Each of the finalists are evaluated by the team across both quantitative and qualitative criteria such as financial success, innovation in technology, the quality of the management team, intellectual property creation, revenue growth, execution of marketing strategies and the general disruption in their respective industries. These criteria give the editorial team a unique perspective that allows the selection of companies to get beyond the typical marketing hype.
