LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) June 08, 2017
Unreel Entertainment has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, which annually recognizes the continent’s brightest and most innovative private tech ventures. Unreel, a leading disrupter in the OTT and video technology industry, joins the ranks of previous prestigious finalists including Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter and YouTube.
Unreel was selected by Red Herring’s editorial team after a months-long process that took into account criteria including disruptive impact, proof of concept, financial performance, market footprint and quality of management.
“Selecting finalists for this year’s Top 100 has proved more difficult than ever,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and chairman of Red Herring. “North America has been tech’s beating heart for years – but never have I seen such an exciting, disruptive and innovative generation as we have in 2017.”
“Unreel fully deserves its place among our finalists, and I’ve every confidence it will make a significant impact in the tech world,” added Vieux.
Unreel’s inclusion as a finalist for the Top 100 North America is recognition of the company an industry leader in OTT. Being in the Top 100 North America has been a springboard for some of tech’s biggest names, and a trusted tool for venture capitalists, experts and analysts in predicting industry trends.
