Movius Selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America Winner
Atlanta, GA – June 11, 2015 – Movius Corporation, the global leader in mobile identities and converged messaging solutions, announced today that it has been chosen by Red Herring as one of its Top 100 North America award winners. This award recognizes Movius as a leading private company from the region, and celebrates its innovations within the telecommunications industry. The Red Herring win follows the recent release of Gartner’s 2015 Strategic Roadmap for BYOD/BYOC Split Billing Solutions1 report, which includes Movius among example future state vendor solutions (http://moviuscorp.com/company/#gartner). Movius believes that these independent industry validations; combined with the rapid expansion of Movius’ customer/partner base, demonstrate the disruption Movius is continuing to create in mobile telecom.
Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.
In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the North America winners. We believe Movius embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Movius should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.
“In 2015, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the North America winners. We believe Movius embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Movius should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, DNA of the founders, business model, customer footprint and addressable market. A review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers allowed Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.
“We are absolutely thrilled and honored to have been selected from the wide array of privately held technology companies evaluated by Red Herring in this years competition,” said Dominic Gomez, president and CEO, Movius Corporation. “This award further validates the recognition we have received from industry analysts, the media, as well as our partners and customers for the innovative mobile identities and converged messaging solutions we deliver to the market.”
