HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KVH Co. Ltd., Asia’s leading information delivery platform headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, today announced that it has been selected as a winner of the Red Herring Top 100 Asia award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the Asian business region.
"Entrepreneurship in Asia has reached an inflexion point, and as a result, Red Herring Asia 2014 has shifted into a new phase," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "A second generation of entrepreneurs is emerging and their execution skills and global ambitions is leading to great companies, solid growth and a global footprint. As importantly, we are seeing more companies from countries once absent from innovation circles. KVH shows great promise and therefore deserves to be among the Top 100 rising tech companies in Asia.”
“We are pleased to have been recognized as one of the Top 100 companies in Asia by the editorial staff of Red Herring,” said Peter Jedrey, KVH VP of Marketing. “This award is a testament to the hard work of everyone at KVH who have come together to grow KVH beyond Japan and establish the company as a leading information delivery platform in Asia providing integrated IT and communication solutions.”
The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds of rising technology companies across Asia. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standings, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising business models in Asia.
