Leading maritime e-marketplace recognized as one of the 100 most promising companies in Europe driving the future of technology.
LONDON, UK, April 15, 2008 – Red Herring today announced that ShipServ, the leading maritime e-marketplace, is a recipient of the Red Herring 100 Europe, an award given to the top 100 private technology companies based in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region each year.
The award was honored at the Red Herring Europe 2008 event held at the Westin Dragonara Resort, Malta.
“We’re proud to be recognised by such a prestigious award in recognition of our ongoing innovation,” commented Paul Ostergaard, Founder & CEO. “We are fundamentally changing the way in which enterprise applications are delivered to businesses – bringing together the benefits of a software as a service delivery model coupled with a networked community and innovative monetization models such as advertising. But at the end of the day its all about delivering value to our customers – who with ShipServ can drive out inefficiencies, increase competitiveness and transform the way they do business.”
Red Herring’s lists of top private companies are an important part of the publication’s tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Companies like Google, eBay, and Skype were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors, and touted as leaders that would change the way we live and work.
“This year’s impressive list of winners demonstrates Europe’s emergence as a major player in the global technology sector,” said Red Herring Editor-in-Chief, Joel Dreyfuss. “The exceptional accomplishments of European technology companies and entrepreneurs are a testament to the rapid advancements being made in building the European innovation ecosystem.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff rigorously evaluated several hundred private companies through a careful analysis of financial data and subjective criteria, including quality of management, execution of strategy, and dedication to research and development.
