As CEO of IGLOO, I am pleased that our company was recognized by Red Herring as one of the top 50 companies in Canada.
Red Herring Canada hosted its first annual Top 50 Awards, celebrating the most innovative and promising companies in Canada. Adding to the success of the yearly North America 100, Europe 100 and Global 100 events, Red Herring Canada provided an opportunity for the nation's Top 50 companies to deliver their message to the top VCs and other participants throughout North America and abroad.
The nominees were rigidly evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy and integration into their ecosystem. This unique assessment of potential was measured by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list an invaluable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.
The Top 50 Winners were announced at the Red Herring Canada event on September 16, 2008.
The CEOs and founders from the Red Herring Canada Top 50 presented their winning technologies to an audience of leading entrepreneurs, financiers and corporate strategists in Mont-Tremblant on September15-17, 2008.
