“In today’s economies, the unrivaled technology ubiquity is not only disrupting how we work but also how we live and think. The vast amount of data and intellectual property combined with the innovation and disruption created by today’s entrepreneurs is touching every sector,” Red Herring CEO, Alex Vieux said. “The 2016 Red Herring nominees prove that while some will worry about a bubble, there is no pause in innovation any time soon. Speed, creativity and unconventional business models are constantly shifting investors’ thesis and users’ behavior – both are demanding more, not less, from entrepreneurs. An unprecedented number of entrepreneurs are jumping ahead of the competition and making a difference. At this stage, we are left with the daunting task to select the best qualified companies for the 2016 Top 100 Global Award,” continued Vieux.
