PRESTIGIOUS LIST HONORS THE YEAR’S MOST PROMISING PRIVATE TECHNOLOGY VENTURES FROM THE EUROPEAN BUSINESS REGION
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MONTPELLIER, France and REDWOOD CITY, California (April 10, 2013) – Tageos announced today it has been chosen as a Red Herring Top 100 Europe, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the European business region.
Red Herring announced its Top 100 winners today, recognizing Europe’s leading private companies and celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring’s editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work
“Selecting startups that show the most potential for disruption and growth is never easy,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “We looked at hundreds and hundreds of candidates from all across the continent, and after much thought and debate, narrowed the list down to the Top 100 Winners. Each year, the competition gets tougher but we believe Tageos demonstrates the vision, drive and innovation that define a Red Herring winner.”
“We are honored to be a Red Herring Top 100 Europe” said Matthieu Picon, co-founder & CEO of Tageos. “Adoption of item-level RFID labeling in the global apparel industry is accelerating fast. Item-level tagging of cosmetics, jewelry, and healthcare products is also on the rise, along with tagging of mobile business assets for asset tracking and logistics purposes. The label is the consumable in the RFID value chain. With its complete product range of high performance item-level labels that are significantly lower cost yet match the performance of alternative plastic inlay-based RFID tags, Tageos is poised to be a true game changer in the global RFID industry in 2013 and the years to come.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, overall business strategy and market penetration. This assessment was complemented by a review of the track records and standings of similar startups in the same verticals, 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 in Europe.
