The OnMobile “Top 100 Most Promising Private Companies” award recognizes companies who are leaders among their peers, and are developing game-changing approaches and technologies that push outside the bounds of existing markets and away from entrenched players. Companies are selected based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz. Appcelerator was named a “Top 100 Most Promising Private Company” in the mobile sector.
The TiE50 Award goes to the most visionary and market-aware startups in five key market segments. The organization screened thousands of worldwide applicants for this year’s award through a multi-tier process presided over by judges, including prominent entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, corporate executives and domain experts. Selections were based on innovation, ingenuity, strong management teams and quality of ideas. Appcelerator was awarded the “Top Startup” in the wireless/mobile category.
As a Red Herring “Top 100 Americas” winner, Appcelerator was evaluated and selected for its financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. Red Herring complements these criteria with a review of the company’s track record and standing relative to sector peers. Appcelerator was recognized for being one of the most promising new business models in Americas.
