Innovation is at the heart of what we do here at ShipServ
London, UK (PRWEB) March 24, 2008
Red Herring today announced that ShipServ, the leading maritime e-marketplace, was named a Finalist of Red Herring 100 Europe, an award given to the top 100 private technology companies based in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region each year.
Red Herring's lists of top private companies are an important part of the publication's tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Companies like Google, eBay, and Skype were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors, and touted as leaders that would change the way we live and work.
"This year's impressive list of submissions from companies demonstrates Europe's growing role as a major center of innovation in the global technology sector," said Red Herring Editor-in-Chief Joel Dreyfuss.
Red Herring's editorial staff rigorously evaluated several hundred private companies through a careful analysis of financial data and subjective criteria, including quality of management, execution of strategy, and dedication to research and development.
"Innovation is at the heart of what we do here at ShipServ," commented Paul Ostergaard, Founder & CEO. "So it's great to have this endorsed by being a finalist for such a renowned award."
Red Herring will honor the Red Herring 100 Europe Finalist companies at its Red Herring Europe 2008 event. Scheduled for April 14-16, at the Westin Dragonara Resort, this intimate, three-day event is themed "The Pursuit of Disruption" and will explore how European firms are leading the charge in many technology sectors, gaining the competitive advantage, and driving entrepreneurial success in ways that create business opportunities for challengers and incumbents alike.
