Despite the challenges of the year, ZineOne continues on its upward trend of recognition and industry leaps in 2020. Most recently, it was named a winner of the Red Herring Top 100 North America 2020 event.
For more than twenty years, this recognition has been awarded to the continent’s most innovative private technology companies, projecting which startups exceed industry expectations and will continue on paths to success. The Red Herring website labels the list as “an instrument for discovering and advocating the most promising private ventures from around the world.” In making this list, ZineOne joins the ranks of past winning brands such as Alibaba, Kakao, Skype, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube.
“We are delighted to be part of the Red Herring Top 100 North America winners,” says Debjani Deb, CEO, and co-founder of ZineOne. “Not only is it a technology industry time-honored tradition, but we also join some truly amazing companies that are developing technologies and services that will better our industry and society.”
This year, the event took place virtually on Nov. 17-18, with thousands of entrants presenting their companies via keynote speeches, discussions, and finalist presentations. Under the umbrella of technology industries, entries spanned from FinTech, to Artificial Intelligence, to Security, and more. The pool was judged and whittled down by industry experts and journalists—criteria included financial performance, innovation, business strategy, and market penetration.
Red Herring chairman Alex Vieux said of the 2020 winners: “2020’s crop of Top 100 winners has been among our most intriguing yet…what has excited me most is to see so many people forging niches in high-tech and cutting edge sectors. Some of the technical wizardry and first-rate business models showcased at the conference have been fantastic to learn about. We believe ZineOne embodies the drive, skill, and passion on which tech thrives ZineOne should be proud of its achievement—the competition was incredibly strong.”
Following the announcement of the Top 100 lists from Asia, Europe, and the Americas, winners will be invited to present at the Top 100 Global event next year. Looking forward, ZineOne intends to build on the accomplishment, continuing on the path of success and growth envisaged by this award.
