ShineOn Selected as a 2013 Red Herring Top 100 Global
SANTA MONICA, Calif.—DATE—Red Herring announced its Top 100 Global in recognition of the leading private companies
from North America, Europe, and Asia today, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their
Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a 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,
Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from
across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe ShineOn embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a
successful entrepreneurial venture. ShineOn should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it
has ever been.”
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 records 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 from around the world.
