The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across North America. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.
“WealthEngine is thrilled to be selected as a finalist for the Red Herring Top 100 North America Award,” said Tony Glowacki, WealthEngine’s President and CEO. “Our prospect research and analytics solutions support more than 2,500 clients and are changing the face of how our clients approach marketing and fundraising activities. Cutting edge prospect identification and segmentation allows financial service firms, luxury goods retailers, real estate companies and nonprofit organizations to generate more targeted leads and upsell with remarkable assurance.

This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make 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. WealthEngine shows great promise and therefore deserves to be among the Finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring North America. We know that the 2011 crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact.”
