Re herring Global Winner 2014

Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work. 

“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 the globe to the Top 100 Winners.

We believe Adra Match embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Adra Match should be proud of its accomplishment.”

“We are very happy and honored to be among the global winners. To receive global recognition again shows that our software solutions and technology have huge potential. Furthermore it shows that we are among the global leaders within Financial Close- and Reconciliation Management” said Martin Thunman, CEO, Adra Match.

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 records and standing of startups 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 from around the world.
