Paris, France – April 20, 2016 – Qosmos®, the market leader in IP traffic classification and network intelligence technology used in physical and virtualized architectures, today announced it has been named a 2016 Red Herring Top 100 Europe Winner, a prestigious list recognizing Europe’s leading private companies and celebrating innovation across the region.
Red Herring Top 100 Europe selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the European Region. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring’s Top 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying innovative companies and outstanding entrepreneurs. Red Herring’s editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Kakao, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube would change the way we live and work.
“In 2016, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Europe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Qosmos embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Qosmos should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, business strategy and market penetration. This assessment was complemented by a review of the track records and standings of similar companies in the same verticals, allowing Red Herring to make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising business models in Europe.
