The 2012 Red Herring Top 100 Europe (Top 100 EU) is now accepting applications from innovative and private technology companies based in Europe. The Red Herring was originally launched in May 1993 by Anthony B. Perkins, Christopher J. Alden, and Zachary A. Herlick. The Red Herring magazine was described by the Wall Street Journal as the “bible of Silicon Valley.� The magazine was quickly popular with Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and the Valley community of lawyers, accountants, bankers and the like who were part of the technology entrepreneurial ecosystem. Red Herring is a global media company uniting the world's best high technology innovators, venture investors and business decision makers in a variety of forums: a leading innovation magazine; an online daily technology news service; technology newsletters, and major events for technology leaders around the globe. Red Herring provides an insider's access to the global innovation economy, featuring unparalleled insights on the emerging technologies driving the economy. Red Herring hosts events around the globe - from Beijing to Budapest to Kyoto to Cannes. Red Herring events have long delivered clear and intelligent insight into the critical trends shaping the future of technology. We bring together industry leaders, venture capitalists and other financiers, entrepreneurs and our own business intelligence team to share ideas and present our research-based discoveries. Attendees explore the strategic shifts and disruptions that new technologies will have across all continents. For the past two decades the Red Herring, the US-based media company whose mission is to cover innovation, technology, financing and entrepreneurial activity around the globe has identified the most groundbreaking startups. As a result, we have launched an Award in Europe, Asia, USA and Global that is called the Red Herring Top 100, bestowed on the most promising future household names. Red Herring’s Top 100 list has become an annual mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, eBay, that would change the way we live and work. An experienced group of Red Herring editorial judges will review each company nomination. Nominees will be evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy and integration into their ecosystem. The board rates hundreds of companies on multiple levels, and then selects 100 companies that are leading the next wave of innovation. At this time we are screening the remarkable startups that could be eligible to be part of the EU and USA competitions. Finalists and winners will be invited to take part in the 2012 Red Herring Global at the end of the year. After you submit and hold your first teleconference with our Chairman Alex Vieux we will determine whether you have made it to the Top 100 EU Finalist stage. Many companies will send out PR announcements once this finalist list is publicized on March 23, 2012.
