the list a valuable 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. Capablue 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 2012 crop will grow into some amazing companies that
are sure to make an impact.”
“It is great to be selected for the second year running as a finalist in Red Herring’s
Top 100 Europe award,” said Tom Cape, CEO Capablue. “The Red Herring awards celebrate
companies’ unique innovations and performance over the past year and it’s great to see
that we have been recognised for our hard work and technological contributions to the
Connected TV landscape.”
