As a leading innovator in digital content access and file sharing for the mobile community, we are proud to announce that TappIn has been selected as a Red Herring 2011 Top 100 Global award recipient, a prestigious recognition honoring the year’s most audacious and far reaching private technology companies and entrepreneurs from across the globe.
“Choosing the best out of the previous two years was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed down our list from 1,100 potential companies to 100 winners. It was an extremely difficult process. TappIn should be extremely proud of its achievement; the competition for the Top 100 was fierce. The Top 100 Global are truly the best of the best.”
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 record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list an invaluable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the greatest business opportunities from around the world.
Red Herring’s Global 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Google, Skype, Baidu, Salesforce.com, YouTube, eBay, and many others would change the way we live and work. Winners were announced on December 7, 2011 at an awards banquet in Los Angeles, California.
TappIn’s innovative technology has won numerous awards and accolades from leading industry authorities. “As mobile technology increasingly pervades all aspects of our everyday lives, the ability to access rich media content—from documents to music to photos—on those devices is becoming a must for mobile users at work and at home,” said Chris Hopen, president of TappIn. “Through our recent acquisition by GlobalSCAPE and recognition from industry leaders like Red Herring, we’re continuing to generate growing awareness of our access solution and anticipate expansive growth in 2012.”
