Marin Software Wins Red Herring Global Top 100 Award
Leading Online Ad Management Platform Provider Recognized for Financial Performance, Technology Innovation, Market Penetration, and Strong Management Team
San Francisco, CA December 13, 2011 – Marin Software, provider of the leading online advertising management platform for advertisers and agencies, today announced that it has received the Red Herring Global 100 award. The prestigious list recognizes the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia.
Red Herring’s Global 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Google, Skype, Baidu, Salesforce.com, YouTube, eBay and many others would change the way we live and work.
“Choosing the best out of the previous two years was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed down our list from 1,100 potential companies to 100 winners. It was an extremely difficult process. Marin Software should be extremely proud of its achievement, the competition for the Top 100 was fierce. The Top 100 Global are truly the best of the best.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, 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 an invaluable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the greatest business opportunities from around the world.
“Winning the Red Herring Global 100 is a great recognition of how hard the entire team at Marin has worked this year to bring our online ad management platform to more than 1,100 brands and agencies worldwide,” said Christopher Lien, CEO of Marin Software. “We’re honored to be recognized for this award and look forward to another successful year.”
