Friday, November 2, 2018 — Pasadena, California/US | The Berlin-based mobile games company Kolibri Games has been announced as a 2018 Red Herring Top 100 Global winner, joining the list that has in previous years featured global pioneers such as Google and Facebook.
At a conference in California, Red Herring announced its selection in recognition of the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Supercell, 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,” says 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 Kolibri Games embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Kolibri Games should be proud of its accomplishment.”
Janosch Sadowski, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Kolibri Games, says:
“We have worked exceptionally hard the past two years, and are extremely happy to gain also international recognition with this award. To now stand, where our personal and professional idols have once stood, is extremely encouraging.”
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.
