Red Herring Recognizes Hazelcast as Top 100 Award Winner

Last week, Hazelcast earned a coveted spot on the list of Red Herring’s Top 100 North America private technology companies. Make no mistake, there was nothing fishy or misleading about this honor.

Ok, enough of the “red herring” puns.

If you’re not familiar with Red Herring, it is a global media organization aimed at uniting the world of high-tech innovators, venture capital investors, and business makers. For more than two decades, the publication and Alex Vieux, its current CEO and Chairman, have covered the technology sector with the goal of impacting the global innovation economy.

With that purpose in mind, Hazelcast was selected by Red Herring as a finalist and invited CEO Kelly Herrell to present to a panel of industry experts, insiders, and journalists. The judges then used a wide variety of criteria to select the finalists, including financial performance, innovation, business strategy, and market penetration.

After showcasing year-over-year growth, Global 2000 customer adoption and market-leading technologies, Hazelcast was selected among 99 other innovative companies to be a Red Herring Top 100 award finalist.

Featuring a history that singled out companies like Google, Skype, Spotify, Twitter, YouTube and more, Hazelcast is honored to be recognized by Red Herring.
