We are delighted to announce that The Link App has been short-listed for Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe award, a prestigious list honouring Europe’s most promising European private technology ventures. The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across Europe. The nominees are evaluated on 20 main quantitative and qualitative criterion, which include disruptive impact, market footprint, proof of concept, financial performance, technology innovation, social value, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries. This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry. Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring commented: “This year was rewarding, beyond all expectations. There are many great companies generating really innovative and disruptive products in Europe. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists. The Link App shows great promise and therefore deserves to be among the finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Europe. We know that the 2018 crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact.” Companies on the short-list for the 2018 edition of the Red Herring 100 Europe award are selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health. During the months leading up to the announcement, Red Herring reviewed over 1200 companies in the telecommunications, security, cloud, software, hardware, biotech, mobile and other industries. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony on the evening of April 17 at the Red Herring Europe Forum in Amsterdam.
