Robin Systems Named Finalist for the 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award
SAN JOSE, Calif., May 19 – Robin Systems, a Silicon Valley-based enterprise software company, announced today it is a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.
“We are really excited to be in the running for this recognition with so many innovative companies,” said Premal Buch, chief executive officer of Robin. “The recent release of Robin Containerization Platform and the industry recognition that has followed have made the last few months a very exciting time for Robin as we expand our customer base.”
The company announced Robin Containerization Platform, the first application-defined data center software platform, in April, and earlier this month was honored with a Silver Stevie Award in the New Product category during the 2016 American Business Awards.
Red Herring has been selecting the most exciting and promising start-ups and “scale ups” since 1995. Finalists are evaluated from a pool of hundreds of candidates across North America on criteria which include the candidate company’s addressable market size; its IP and patents; its financing; the proof of concept; trailing revenue; and management’s expertise. A review of the company’s actual track record and standing allows Red Herring to see past “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.
2016 will be remembered as a special vintage. “The finalists’ list confirms the excellent choices made by entrepreneurs and VCs and the start-ups’ solid roots in corporate America, embracing their innovations. By all metrics, it emphasizes the United States’ entrepreneurial excellence,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring.
Finalist selections for the 2016 edition of the Red Herring 100 North America award are based upon technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition and financial health. During the several months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the fields of security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, life sciences, cloud, mobile and others completed their submissions to qualify for the award.
Finalists will present their strategies at the Red Herring North America Forum in Newport Beach June 6 to 8. The Top 100 winners will be announced during a special awards ceremony the evening of June 8.
