Limeade announced today it was short-listed for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology companies from the North American business region.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by Red Herring not only for our tremendous growth, but for the value we bring to our customers through Limeade platform,” said Henry Albrecht, CEO of Limeade. “Our goal is to improve health, well-being and performance in the world. We’re proud of our progress against this audacious goal and excited about where Limeade is going with the future of employee engagement.”
Red Herring has been selecting the most exciting and promising “scale ups” since 1995. Finalists are evaluated individually from hundreds of candidates across North America. Twenty major criteria underlie the scoring and process, including: the candidate company’s addressable market size, its IP and patents, its financing, the proof of concept, trailing revenues and management’s expertise. Each company goes through an individual interview complemented by a due diligence process. The list of finalists often includes the best performing and prominent companies of that year.
This unique assessment of potential is supplemented by a review of the company’s actual track record and standing, 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. Hundreds of companies in the fields of security, cloud, software, hardware, big data, life sciences, mobile and others are considered for the award.
“The short-list confirms the excellent foresight and strong innovations created by entrepreneurs in North America. By all measures, the remarkable group of companies comprising the Top 100 Short-list underlines the region’s constant drive to innovate,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring.
The short-listed companies qualify to present their winning technology at the Red Herring North America. The Top 100 winners will be announced during a special awards ceremony the evening of June 3.
