"Our focus on localizing national brand and retail ad campaigns has put us on the leading edge of hyperlocal marketing, and it’s an honor to have our work and innovation recognized."
Retailigence was awarded alongside other technology leaders such as Revionics and Palantir. Award recipients were evaluated on several factors including; technology innovation, industry disruption, quality of management, and strategy execution. Red Herring’s Top 100 Americas list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs.
“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 Retailigence embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Retailigence should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
The annual Red Herring Top 100 Americas began in 1996. Red Herring’s 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.
