Greystripe, the largest distributor of ad-supported mobile games and applications announced today that they have been selected as a Red Herring 100 Global Winner, placing them amongst the top 100 technology start-ups in the world.
Red Herring 100 winners and finalists from North America, Europe and Asia over the last three years were eligible for this award. The Red Herring editorial team used a very competitive process, evaluating both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, innovation, management, global strategy and ecosystem integration, to whittle down this pool of 1800 eligible promising companies to the 100 winners of this first-time award.
“At Red Herring, we scour the industry to identify the best and brightest technology companies that are transforming the current markets and creating new ones,” said Alex Vieux, Red Herring Publisher.“The Red Herring 100 is our annual list of the most promising private companies. Like Google, eBay, Salesforce.com and other previous Red Herring 100 alumni, these 100 have the potential to become the next titans of technology.”
Greystripe was selected for their leadership in mobile advertising and for their AdWRAP Catalog Platform which is driving the company’s global growth. The Platform enables operators, mobile Web sites, Internet portals, wireless operators, and social communities to distribute Greystripe’s catalog of over 800 free and ad-supported mobile games from publishers like Vivendi Mobile Games, Hands-On Mobile, and Digital Chocolate to their users.
