Boston, May 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Evergage, provider of a real-time behavior-based website personalization platform, announced today it has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.
“The finalist list confirms the excellent choices made by entrepreneurs and VCs and the start-ups’ solid roots in corporate America, embracing their innovations. By all metrics, it emphasizes the United States’ entrepreneurial excellence,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring.
“Evergage is honored to be named a Red Herring Top 100 finalist,” said Karl Wirth, CEO and co-founder of Evergage. Karl added, “Our focus on delivering an easy-to-use, high reward platform that puts marketers in command of website personalization has provided us with a massive market with huge opportunities for growth, and we’ve made it a reality through remarkable execution.”
Red Herring has been selecting the most exciting and promising start-ups and “scale ups” since 1995. Finalists are evaluated individually from a pool of hundreds of candidates based across North America. Finalist selections for the 2014 edition of the Red Herring 100 North America award are based upon technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition and financial health.
During the several months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the fields of security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, life sciences, cloud, mobile and others completed their submissions to qualify for the award. Each company then goes through an individual interview, complemented by a due diligence review of the company’s actual track record and standing. The list of finalists often includes the best performing and prominent companies of that year.
Finalists will present their winning strategies at the Red Herring North America Forum in Monterey, Calif., May 14 to 16, 2014. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of May 16 at the event.
