Finalists for the awards are among the continent’s brightest and most innovative private ventures. Their place among North America’s tech elite has been chosen by Red Herring’s editorial team, during a months-long process that takes into account criteria including disruptive impact, proof of concept, financial performance, market footprint and quality of management.
For over two decades Red Herring’s team has seen through the tech sector’s hype to select brands that have become industry benchmarks. Previous Top 100 finalists have included Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube.
The Top 100 North America has become not only a springboard for some of tech’s biggest names but also a valued and trusted tool for venture capitalists, experts and analysts predicting trends at the industry’s sharpest edge.
“Selecting finalists for this year’s Top 100 has proven more difficult than ever,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and chairman of Red Herring. “North America has been tech’s beating heart for years–but never have I seen such an exciting, disruptive and innovative generation as we have in 2017. NodeSource fully deserves its place among our finalists, and I’ve every confidence it will make a significant impact in the tech world,” added Vieux.
“We are truly honored to have been selected as one of Red Herring’s 2017 Top 100 North America finalists,” said Joe McCann, CEO of NodeSource. “At NodeSource, we are dedicated to striving for the best in everything we do, and it is humbling to be rewarded for that dedication.”
NodeSource will present their winning strategy at the Red Herring Top 100 North America conference in Los Angeles, June 12-14, 2017. The Top 100 winners will be announced June 14 at a special awards ceremony at the event.
