來自加州聖莫尼卡 – 國際知名投資風向雜誌《紅鯡魚》(Red Herring) 公佈了今年所選出的全球創新100強名單，盛大表彰這些來自北美、歐洲及亞洲地區，在各自專業領域中以極佳革新技術與創新服務領先群倫的優秀企業。
Santa Monica, CA – Red Herring announced its Top 100 award in recognition of the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
《紅鯡魚》編輯群率先發現如Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, 以及 eBay 等企業將掀起創新革命，全新改變人們的生活和工作，故每年《紅鯡魚》公佈的全球創新100強已成為各界辨識優秀新企業與創業家的權威性指標。
Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring 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.
「想要票選出最具發展潛力的公司，本身就是一項世界壯舉」《紅鯡魚》的發行人暨執行長 Alex Vieux 表示：「經過嚴格地審核與激烈地辯論，我們終於從數百個入選企業中進一步篩選出全球創新100強。我們相信iTutorGroup(即VIPABC及TutorABC母集團)呈現的遠見、幹勁和創見足以定義自己為成功的創新企業。iTutorGroup應該為自己的成就感到驕傲，因為他們所具有的競爭優勢是前所未見的。」
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Global to the Top 100 Winners. We believe iTutorGroup (the parent company of VIPABC and TutorABC) embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. iTutorGroup should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”
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 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 from around the world.
