The Red Herring 100 North America has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new and emerging companies.
“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 CFN Services embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. CFN Services should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising emerging growth companies in North America. Since the awards program was launched in 1996, the Red Herring 100 lists have been used by technology industry executives, investors and strategists as an instrument for discovering and advocating the most promising private ventures from around the world.
