Scottsdale-based GPS Insight, a leading technology provider of GPS fleet tracking solutions for commercial and government fleets, announced today it has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 Americas Award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across North America. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.
This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.
“This year was very rewarding,” said Alex Vieux, Publisher and Chairman of Red Herring. “There are so many great companies producing truly innovative and amazing products and technologies. We had a very difficult time narrowing the field and selecting the finalists from such a group of future stars. GPS Insight shows great promise therefore deserves to be on the short list. Now we are faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners.”
Rob Donat, Founder and CEO for GPS Insight, said, “We at GPS Insight are honored and thrilled to be a finalist for this significant award. I look forward to attending the awards conference in Santa Monica later this month and meeting the award committee, as well as representatives from the other companies up for the Red Herring Top 100 Americas Award.”
The finalists are asked to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Americas Forum in Santa Monica, California, May 21-23, 2012. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of May 23 at the event.
