NEW YORK, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Crisp Media (www.crispmedia.com), the leading provider of premium mobile advertising technology, media and services, today announced it has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.

Crisp Media is being recognized by Red Herring for its unique business model, which includes its innovative “device-optimized” mobile ad technology, media network, and services. Together, these offerings serve premium brand advertisers that need to tell complex brand stories on the smart devices that increasingly dominate the media landscape. Since adopting its current business model, Crisp has grown dramatically, serving leading brands, publishers and agencies.

“Delivering high quality, device-optimized ad solutions is our passion and we are very excited to be included as a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America Award,” said Jason Young, CEO of Crisp Media. “Our team strives to stay ahead of the curve in the ad-tech world and we are always working to deliver the most effective device-optimized advertising, served into the best contextual environments, to satisfy our clients.

2013 will be remembered as a special vintage. “The finalists list confirms the excellent choices made by entrepreneurs and VCs and the start-ups’ solid roots in corporate America, embracing their innovations. By all metrics, it emphasizes the United States’ entrepreneurial excellence,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring.

Red Herring has been selecting the most exciting and promising start-ups and “scale ups” since 1995. Finalists are still evaluated individually from a large pool of hundreds of candidates based across North America. Twenty major criteria underlie the scoring and process. They include, among others: the candidate company’s addressable market size, its IP and patents, its financing, the proof of concept, trailing revenues and management’s expertise. Each company goes through an individual interview after filling out a thorough submission, complemented by a due diligence. The list of finalists often includes the best performing and prominent companies of that year.

Finalist selections for the 2013 edition of the Red Herring 100 North America award are based upon technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition and financial health. During the several months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the fields of security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, life sciences, cloud, mobile and others completed their submissions to qualify for the award.

Finalists are asked to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring North America Forum in Monterey, Calif., May 21 to 23, 2013. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of May 23 at the event.
