October 10th, 2019, Bangkok, Thailand — Today, Red Herring announced its Top 100 Asia award
winners in recognition of the leading private companies from the region, celebrating these
startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring Top 100 Asia enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1000 privately financed companies each year in the Asia.
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 Google, Facebook, Kakao, Alibaba, Twitter, Rakuten, Salesforce.com, Xiaomi and YouTube would change the way we live and work. Looking at Centilytics’ growth and a need for their platform in the public-cloud market, It certainly has the DNA to be part of the aforementioned list.
“In 2019, selecting the top achievers was difficult as always,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “The variety, depth, disruption and traction we saw from the early stage companies to those with significant scale made 2019 a great vintage to judge. The Asia winners are representative of the amazing ecosystem that never ceases to astound, with new and experienced entrepreneurs continuing to push the barriers of innovation.
“What has excited me most is to see so many people forging niches in high-tech and cutting edge sectors,” added Vieux. “Some of the technical wizardry and first-rate business models on show here at the conference has been fantastic to learn about. We believe Centilytics embodies the drive, skill and passion on which tech thrives. Centilytics should be proud of its achievement: the competition was incredibly 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 market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, 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 Asia.
Centilytics’ track record and their competitive edge in the market truly makes them stand apart from their competition and puts them on the right path towards their vision of becoming the first True Cloud Management Platform.
