SANTA MONICA, CA, Dec. 10, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Red Herring announced its Top 100 award in recognition of the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia, celebrating these startups' innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

Mr. Benoit L'Archevêque, Azzimov's President, was very pleased with this honor as it follows his company being recognized as a TOP North American Tech Startup in May of this year. Mr. L'Archevêque stated that « we particularly appreciated being recognized as a game changer with a worldwide disruptive technology, and a storming business and revenue model ». Indeed, Azzimov has an innovative business plan as its product-centric and socially driven platform, available on the web but mainly targeting mobile (App for now), gives the power to the users by putting them dynamically in contact with retailers, to receive information as well as quotes from many retailers at once, while getting opinions form their social network.

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, Salesforce.com, 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 Global to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Azzimov embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Azzimov should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been."

And for the global perspective, Mr. Jeff Parsons (co-founder & VP - Global Alliances) mentions that « Azzimov has a technology to pioneer worldwide markets because it works well either in English, French, Mandarin or other languages, and the proprietary semantic search engine and Two Button Navigation system for the mobile are built in such a way that Azzimov can white label its product to telecoms around the world that are looking to increase their ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) ».

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 record 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.
