VirtaMed wins Red Herring 100 Europe Award

April 17, 2015

Now it’s official: VirtaMed is one of the top, most exciting 100 start-up companies in Europe! This according to a Red Herring jury that screens thousands of promising start-up companies worldwide each year and assess e.g. growth rate, technological advantage, social contribution, CEO/Team experience and track record, team quality, and other criteria. Hundreds of companies are reviewed in a rigorous 3-step process that looks at all aspects of the company.

The quality of Red Herring Award winners is proof of the thoroughness of the selection process. The event presentations help to verify the quality and the business model as much as the vision of the entrepreneur. Choosing the winners is not just an internal process. Red Herring interacts with individual companies at several times prior to granting them an award. Also, all companies are examined by at least four judges before the conference, and by one or two judges during the event. All companies submit a thorough report to help Red Herring judges reach a decision.

On April 13-15, 2015 in Amsterdam, Red Herring brought together 250 C-level technology entrepreneurs, corporate strategists, and venture financiers from across the continent. They explored the market’s appreciation of innovation as a fast-track to success, and how firms from the region are leading the charge in many tech sectors. During the meeting, they discussed the drivers for successful entrepreneurship, and demonstrated how innovation is creating business opportunities for challengers and incumbents alike.

Since 1996, technology industry executives, investors, and strategists have valued the Red Herring 100 lists as an instrument for discovering and advocating the most promising private ventures from around the world.
