CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BigTime Software, Inc., a leading provider of pro-level time and billing apps for small- to mid-sized accounting firms and a market leader in QuickBooks integration, today announced that it has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 North America award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures.
Red Herring has been selecting the most exciting and promising start-ups and “scale ups” since 1995. Finalists are evaluated individually from a large pool of hundreds of candidates based across North America. Twenty major criteria underlie the scoring and process, including the candidate company's addressable market size, its financing, the proof of concept, trailing revenues and management's expertise.
The list of finalists often includes the best performing and prominent companies of that year.
This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the company’s actual track record and standing, 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.
“The finalists list confirms the excellent choices made by entrepreneurs and VCs and the start-ups' solid roots in corporate America, embracing their innovations. By all metrics, it emphasizes the United States’ entrepreneurial excellence,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring.
Finalist selections for the 2014 edition of the Red Herring 100 North America award are based upon technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition and financial health. During the several months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the fields of security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, life sciences, cloud, mobile and others completed their submissions to qualify for the award.
Finalists will present their winning strategies at the Red Herring North America Forum in Monterey, Calif., May 14-16.
