MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Red Herring has announced GuideSpark as a Red Herring 100 Global Award Winner. This award celebrates the year’s most innovative and far-reaching private technology companies and entrepreneurs from North America, Europe and Asia and was selected from over 1,000 companies from more than 40 nations.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Alibaba Group and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“We want to thank Red Herring for honoring GuideSpark with this prestigious award.” Keith Kitani, CEO of GuideSpark continues, “We have great passion for helping our customers connect and engage with their employees. Together we are building the future of employee communications and I’m excited that we are able to deliver a solution that provides measurable improvement in employee education, participation, and engagement.”
GuideSpark’s innovative solution helps companies connect with their employees through the unique combination of a SaaS delivery platform, customized multimedia content that is kept up-to-date by GuideSpark, and an analytics engine to measure engagement. Companies were judged on a range of qualitative and quantitative metrics, including but not limited to: technology innovation, financial performance, growth criterion, management's execution standards, potential globalization of the strategy, and market share improvement. This was complemented by a review of the track records and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe GuideSpark embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. GuideSpark should be proud of its accomplishment.”
