ORANGE, Calif., May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Wireless Emporium is thrilled to announce that it has been selected as a Finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 North America award. This prestigious list honors the year's most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region. The honor continues the trend of local and national recognition that Wireless Emporium has garnered over the past several years recognizing it as one of the fastest growing private companies in the United States.
The finalists have been whittled down from a pool of nearly one thousand hopefuls to 200. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.
"This year was very rewarding," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "The global economic situation has abated and there are many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists. Wireless Emporium shows great promise therefore deserves to be among the Finalists. Now we're faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring North America. We know that the 2011 crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact."
During the several months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the telecommunications, security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, biotech, mobile and other industries completed their submissions to qualify for the award. The Finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring North America Forum in Hollywood, California, June 13-15, 2011. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of June 15 at the event.
