Accedo Chosen as a 2015 Red Herring Europe Winner

Stockholm, 21st April 2015 –
Accedo, the global market leader in TV application solutions, today announced that it has been chosen as a Red Herring winner in 2015. The Red Herring Europe award recognises Europe’s leading private companies and startups.

Red Herring has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies. Red Herring’s editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“Selecting startups that show the most potential for disruption and growth is never easy,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “We looked at hundreds and hundreds of candidates from all across the continent, and after much thought and debate, narrowed the list down to the Top 100 Winners. Each year, the competition gets tougher but we believe Accedo demonstrates the vision, drive and innovation that define a Red Herring Top 100.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, overall business strategy and market penetration. This assessment was complemented by a review of the track records and standings of similar startups in the same verticals, allowing 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 Europe.

“We are delighted to have been selected for the Red Herring Top 100, which would not have been possible without the drive and dedication of the entire team at Accedo,” commented Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo. “Accedo was built on a vision of where the media industry was heading, and solving the technology hurdles that presents. We look forward to continuing to lead the transformation of the TV industry over the coming years.”
