Affle Group has won the 2012 Red Herring Top 100 Global award. A mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs, the award highlights some of the most innovative and transformative companies on the globe, companies that revolutionise their respective ecosystems and further evolve our technological world.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list was among the first to recognise that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
Speaking on the achievement, Anuj Khanna Sohum, Founder and Chairman, Affle Group said, “Winning the ‘Top 100 Global’ is both humbling and inspiring. I’d like to thank and congratulate the Affle and ad2c teams for their passion and commitment towards building technology innovations and enabling our exponential growth that deserves this recognition.”
Incidentally, Anuj Khanna Sohum and Madan Sanglikar, CEO, ad2c were also recently recognised as the IMPACT Digital Power 100 Icons of the Indian digital industry.
“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 Global to the Top 100 Winners. We believe the Affle Group embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Affle should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of start-ups 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 globally.
