Digital Air Strike, the automotive social media and digital engagement company won the Red Herring North America Top 100 Award this week in San Diego. Digital Air Strike was recognized for its disruptive and innovative social marketing platform for the automobile industry.
The Red Herring Top 100 North America Award highlights the most exciting and promising start-up and “scale up” private companies on the continent. Digital Air Strike was named to the list from thousands of companies that applied for the award.
Digital Air Strike COO Thom Brodeur presented Digital Air Strike’s award-winning technology to the Red Herring judging panel. He says, “The Red Herring Top 100 is a recognition of progress-to-date and often a bellwether of future success. Thousands of Red Herring Top 100 alum have gone on to become some of the most game-changing and successful companies in the world. Receiving this honor sets us apart and sets the tone for what’s next from us and for the markets we serve. To our team, I couldn’t be more proud of all that you’ve done and will do. To our clients, we couldn’t be more grateful; we’re here, because of you. And, to our shareholders, the best is yet to come.”
“In 2015, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the North America winners. We believe Digital Air Strike embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Digital Air Strike should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very 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 addressable market.
Red Herring 100 Awards are considered one of the technology industry’s most prestigious honors. Previous winners include Google, Twitter, NetSuite, YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn, eBay as well as leaders in cloud computing, biomedical, and mobile devices.
