HILVERSUM, Netherlands, May 26, 2011 -
Yesterday evening in Amsterdam, Blue Billywig, developer and supplier of
a platform for the strategic use of online video, has been rewarded with a
Red Herring Top 100 Europe Award. These prestigious awards are given annually
to the most innovative and promising technology companies in Europe by the
eponymous international technology magazine.
Red Herring's editorial staff rigorously evaluated several hundred
private companies from across Europe and made a selection of the most
innovative ones. Selection of finalists was based upon both quantitative as
qualitative criteria, such as technological innovation, financial health,
management strength, execution of strategy, dedication to research and
development and the integration of products and services in the market.
After being nominated two weeks ago, Blue Billywig presented itself for
the final stage of judging in a live presentation last Tuesday. Yesterday
evening the judging committee selected Blue Billywig as one of the award
winning companies. Jeroen Meeter, CEO of Blue Billywig is very proud indeed:
"It's the deserved recognition of our hard work. We are working with a
dedicated team of fantastic people to keep our Online Video Platform ahead of
the others; development is never ending. This award shows that that effort is
appreciated and recognized. And, moreover, that Blue Billywig is good enough
to conquer the rest of Europe!"
Red Herring's lists of top private companies are an important part of the
publication's tradition of identifying new and innovative technology
companies and entrepreneurs: Google, eBay, and Yahoo were spotted in their
early days by Red Herring editors, and touted as leaders that would change
the way we live and work.
