Yottaa Selected As A 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America Winner
Waltham, MA—June 15, 2016—Yottaa, the leading SaaS platform for accelerating eCommerce, today announced it has been selected as a winner of the 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award, which recognizes leading private companies from the region, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring Top 100 North America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“In 2016, selecting the top achievers was extremely difficult,” said Alex Vieux, Publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “The variety, depth, disruption, and traction we saw from the early stage companies to those with significant scale made it one of the toughest vintages to judge. The North America winners are representative of the amazing ecosystem that never ceases to astound, with new and experienced entrepreneurs continuing to push the barriers of innovation. As one of the winners, Yottaa should be proud of its accomplishment under such strong competition.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, DNA of the founders, business model, customer footprint, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector 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 in North America.
“Yottaa is very honored to be named a Red Herring 100 Award winner for 2016, especially since we competed against 1,200 other emerging technology companies,” said Bob Buffone, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Yottaa. “Since we launched Yottaa we have focused on driving innovation in the eCommerce acceleration market and, most importantly, delivering significant business value for our many eCommerce customers. Winning this award is further validation that we have succeeded on both of these fronts and is a strong indicator of Yottaa’s future growth potential.”
