Mobile game publisher KICK9 Inc., was selected as the “Red Herring Asia 2015 Top 100 Enterprise” winners. The award was presented by well-known international business investment magazine “Red Herring (Red Herring)” in recognition of the leading private companies in Asia.

Red Herring 100 awards are widely recognized as one of the industry’s more prestigious recognitions. The list has become a mark of distinction for up-and-coming entrepreneurs.

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 peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Asia.
