Beneq has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 Europe award, a prestigious list acknowledging the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the European business region.

The chosen finalists reflect the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across Europe. The nominees are evaluated on several criteria, including financial performance, technology innovation, management skills, execution of strategy and integration into their respective industries. This assessment of potential is further complemented by a review of the actual track record and status of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a credible instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.

"This year was very rewarding," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "The global economic situation has abated and there are many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists. Beneq shows great promise therefore deserves to be among the Finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Europe. We know that the 2011 crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact."

Beneq CEO, Mr Sampo Ahonen, says: “This acknowledgement is very pleasing, as it further assures us at Beneq, our customers and owners alike, that our work is on a sound and credible basis, regardless of who is evaluating our business. We have unique skills within Beneq, and we are eager to put them to work and turn them into success.”
