Solid Execution in BigData Analytics for Online Advertising Market Key to Metamarkets’ Win
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – June 3, 2013 - Metamarkets, the leader in real-time analytics for online advertising, announced today it has been awarded Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures in America that are “positioned to grow at an explosive rate.” Red Herring’s editorial staff based its selections on both quantitative and qualitative criteria for each company, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration.
“Metamarkets is thrilled to be part of Red Herring’s distinguished 2013 Red Herring Top 100,” said Michael Driscoll, CEO, Metamarkets. “This award further validates what we already know to be true. Metamarkets will continue to provide the best analytics solution to convert big data into game-changing action and we’re excited about all that is ahead.”
From a pool of more than 1,000 candidates, Red Herring’s editorial staff selected the winning companies on 20 different quantitative and qualitative criteria such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration.
“In 2013, selecting the Top 100 achievers was by no means a small feat” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs have crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe MetaMarkets embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. MetaMarkets should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Red Herring has been selecting the most exciting and promising start-ups and “scale ups” since 1995. Finalists are still evaluated individually from a large pool of hundreds of candidates based across North America. Twenty major criteria underlie the scoring and process. They include, among others: 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 after filling out a thorough submission, complemented by a due diligence. The list of finalists often includes the best performing and prominent companies of that year. Further information on the selection process can be found here: http://www.redherring.com/top-100/.
