Santa Monica, CA – GPS Insight, a leading technology provider of GPS fleet tracking solutions for commercial and government fleets, announced today it has been selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America Tech Startup winner, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Americas 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.
“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 North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe GPS Insight embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. GPS Insight should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
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 a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.
Rob Donat, Founder & CEO for GPS Insight, said “I am extremely grateful and appreciative that GPS Insight has been recognized as a Red Herring Top 100 North America winner. After attending this 3 day conference and meeting many of the CEO’s from other finalists, I see that the competition was well beyond significant. Having done what GPS Insight has in terms of growth and product development over these past 7 years has been challenging, and receiving an award such as this really reminds us that it has been significant and well worth all our team’s effort. We appreciate the significant work Mr. Vieux and Red Herring have done to comprehensively review over a thousand companies in order to determine the 200 finalists and the 100 winners of the Red Herring Top 100 North America.”
