SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SkyCross, a leading global designer and manufacturer of advanced antenna and RF solutions, announced today it is a winner of the 2014 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award, joining a prestigious list of the year's most promising private technology ventures.
Red Herring selects the Top 100 by analyzing approximately 3,000 cutting edge companies and technologies, recognizing those that are positioned to grow at very rapid rates. This year, C-level executives from 300 finalist companies presented in Monterey, California, including SkyCross CEO Ben Naskar. From May 14-16, these highly-innovative finalist companies shared strategies for leading change in a variety of technological sectors and discussed drivers for successful entrepreneurship.
Red Herring’s selection criteria include evaluating technological innovation, overall business strategy, management strength, financial performance and customer acquisition.
“In 2014, 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 had 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 SkyCross embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. SkyCross should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
The Red Herring award reflects SkyCross' progress in developing antenna and RF solutions that significantly increase data rates and overall performance. Earlier this year, Deutsche Telekom released field test results of SkyCross’ LTE-Advanced MIMO technology that delivered a best-in-class user experience by enhancing performance across loaded networks under all conditions, augmenting peak data rates, improving indoor performance, and growing cell size. The demo was a significant milestone in the development of LTE-A technology.
