GENWI, the leader in cloud publishing, announced that it has received the Red Herring Top 100 award in recognition of the leading private companies in the Americas, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Americas list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe GENWI embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. GENWI should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
