Red Herring Global 100: Four award winners are from the Greater Zurich Area

The latest Red Herring Global 100 confirms last year’s trend: The business location Greater Zurich Area is a global hotbed for information technology companies. Four out of the five award winners from Switzerland hail from the Greater Zurich Area.

In January, Red Herring has published the Red Herring Global 100, an annual list of the 100 most promising technology start-ups worldwide. Five Swiss companies are among the winners. Four of them are located in the Greater Zurich Area. They are Semantic System, Hocoma, Kooaba and Procedural.

The Red Herring Gobal 100 is based on quantitative and qualitative criteria such as financial performance, technological innovation, corporate strategy and market penetration, as well as company reputation among its industry peers. All these factors combined establish the list as a valuable directory for some of the technologically and business-wise most promising start-up companies worldwide.
