WRITTEN BY Alexandra Tamashiro

PASADENA, CALIFORNIA — SpotMe, a global technology provider of enterprise platform solutions, was announced a Red Herring Top 100 Global Winner, a recognition of the technology industry’s most exciting and innovative private companies from around the world.

“We are honored Red Herring has recognized us for this distinguished award. SpotMe’s constant evolution and increasing sophistication has required us to navigate several technology cycles and this selection is a recognition of our ability to continuously reinvent ourselves,” says Pierre Metrailler, CEO of SpotMe.

Today, SpotMe’s partnership with events is one of its few constants, throughout a striking 16 years of change, development and pivots that few other startup C-suites could imagine, SpotMe is an enterprise platform that inspires engagement to events and beyond.

Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs from North America, Europe, and Asia across their respective industries. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe SpotMe embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. SpotMe should be proud of its accomplishment.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, ranging from financial performance and technology innovation, to management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of companies potential is complemented by a track records and standing review of startups comparing to their peers, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world.
