London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) April 05, 2012
AirSense Wireless announced today it has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 Europe award, a prestigious list honouring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from Europe.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds across Europe. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.
This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.
"This year was very rewarding," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "The global economic situation has abated and there are many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists. AirSense Wireless shows great promise and deserves to be among the finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Europe. We know that the 2012 crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact."
“We are delighted to have been selected as a finalist for this year’s Red Herring award,” said James King, CEO of AirSense Wireless. “This represents a validation of the exciting technology that Airsense Wireless has developed to help make the ‘Hypernet’ a reality. Wi-Fi is part of a smartphone owner’s daily experience, and yet it is all too often problematic. There is a minefield of low-quality networks and, in the worst cases, dead hotspots. AirSense Wireless allows mobile carriers and Wi-Fi providers to ensure that people are always given the best experience, taking into account time, place, quality-of-service, and customer preference. Critically, we do this across all operating systems including Apple iOS and Android.”
Finalists for the 2012 edition of the Red Herring 100 Europe award are selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health. During the several months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the telecommunications, security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, biotech, mobile and other industries completed their submissions to qualify for the award.
The finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Europe Forum in Amsterdam, April 23-25, 2012. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony on the evening of April 25 at the event.
