Honored as One of the Most Promising Private Technology Ventures
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - Ace Metrix®, the new standard in television and video analytics, has been awarded a place on the Red Herring 100 North America list, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.
“Our Company is based on the premise of applying innovative technology to deliver a unique cloud-based analytics solution with the depth and speed that advertisers crave. The award acknowledges our past achievements, evidences our future potential and reflects the commitment of the Ace Metrix team.”
Culled from a field of more than 3,000 candidate technology companies, Ace Metrix joins the ranks of such prominent past Red Herring 100 North America winners as Google, Yahoo!, Skype, Salesforce.com and YouTube.
“We are honored to have been selected by Red Herring from such a talented pool of technology start-ups,” said Peter Daboll, Ace Metrix CEO. “Our Company is based on the premise of applying innovative technology to deliver a unique cloud-based analytics solution with the depth and speed that advertisers crave. The award acknowledges our past achievements, evidences our future potential and reflects the commitment of the Ace Metrix team.”
“In 2013, 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 have crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our finalists down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Ace Metrix embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Ace Metrix should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Red Herring Top 100 North America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects one hundred Award winners, among the 3000 tech startups financed each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring keeps tabs on the up and comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Marin Software, Palo Alto Networks, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation and intellectual property, management quality, business model, customer footprint, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector 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 in North America.
Peter Daboll, Ace Metrix CEO, presented the Company’s winning strategy at the Red Herring North America Forum in Monterey, Calif., on May 23, 2013.
