GIS People – Finalists for 2014 Red Herring Top 100 Asia Award

GIS People has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 Asia award, a prestigious list honouring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the Asian business region.

The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across Asia, and GIS People is one of only four companies selected from Australia. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.

This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of company track records and standings, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable tool for discovering and advocating for the best business opportunities in the industry.

“Entrepreneurship in Asia has reached an inflexion point, and as a result, Red Herring Asia 2014 has shifted into a new phase,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “A second generation of entrepreneurs is emerging and their execution skills and global ambitions is leading to great companies, solid growth and a global footprint. As importantly, we are seeing more companies from countries once absent from innovation circles. GIS People shows great promise and therefore deserves to be among the finalists. Now we are faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Asia. We know that 2014 will reward us for a long and continued effort scouting disruptive companies in Asia.”

The finalists are asked to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Asia Forum in Hong Kong, 25th to 27th August, 2014. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of 27th August at the event.
