SilkRoad technology, a leading provider of talent management solutions, announced today it was named one of the AlwaysOn East Top 100. Inclusion in the AlwaysOn East 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players.
SilkRoad was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
“AlwaysOn’s recognition of SilkRoad and our game-changing technology is a great honor,” said Andrew J. “Flip” Filipowski, Chairman, President and CEO of SilkRoad technology. “We are proud to be leading the way in innovation in the talent management world and to be creating new opportunities on the East Coast, as well as globally. So far 2010 has been another great year for us with a tremendous amount of recognition from around the industry.”
The AlwaysOn East Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s Venture Summit East event on June 21st, 2010, at Harvard Business School in Boston, MA.
This two-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates that highlight the significant economic, political, and technology trends impacting the global growth investor on the East Coast.
"After examining the companies that are on the AOE100 list, it's obvious that innovation is not only alive and well on the East Coast, it's accelerating in economic power and scope," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "The companies certainly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace."
The AlwaysOn East 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2010 list.
