LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 22, 2011) - Red Herring (http://www.redherring.com/) today announced the finalists of the Red Herring Global Award, which includes the most promising technology start-ups from all across the world, including North America, Asia and Europe. The Red Herring team uses a highly competitive process to select only the most innovative companies from a pool of over 1,000 applicants. On December 5-7 in Los Angeles, Red Herring will award the top-100 companies from around the world with the Red Herring Global Award; a list of all the contestants can be found online at http://www.herring100.com/RHG/2011/finalists.html

Red Herring Global nominees are truly the best of the best, companies who placed highly at the Red Herring Asia, Europe and North America Awards in 2010 and 2011. This year's Global nominees are rigidly evaluated on quantitative and qualitative criteria; financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration. This assessment is measured by a review of the track record and standing of a company, allowing Red Herring to see past the hype and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering and advocating great business opportunities in the industry.

On December 5-7, 2011, Los Angeles will play host to the Red Herring Global Conference, an exclusive gathering of regional leaders and small, innovative startups in the technology industry. Red Herring is the premier platform for CEOs and senior executives, and provides participants with one-on-one exchanges and peer-to-peer show and tell opportunities. In addition to announcing the Top 100, the conference will also address global market challenges and introduce an outlook for this continuously evolving sector.

Red Herring Global will bring together more than 200 venture financiers, corporate strategists, and C-level technology entrepreneurs from across the globe.

Red Herring Global features keynote speeches from industry leaders, roundtable discussions led by CEOs of emerging firms and corporate presentations from CEOs of private technology companies.
