Red Herring Top 100 North America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects one hundred award winners, among the 3,000 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.
Economic, cultural and technological conditions are pushing companies to look for new ways to engage workers, while remaining competitive and profitable. According to MBO Partners, independent workers are on the rise and will account for more than 50% of the workforce by 2020. OnForce is at the forefront of this labor evolution and delivers a full-time employee-like experience with independent professional or contractor resources to solve common labor management challenges experienced by nearly all businesses. Through its on demand, talent-as-a-service model, OnForce can support businesses of all sizes at any lifecycle stage – from startup to maturity.
"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 list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 winners. We believe OnForce embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. OnForce should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."
"We are very proud of our team, grateful to our investors and honored to have achieved the winner's circle for this highly distinguished award," said Peter Cannone, CEO of OnForce.
