FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
IRVINE, Calif. – May 3, 2012 – Sonic Emotion, the company responsible for developing Absolute 3D sound technology, announced today that it had been named a finalist in Red Herring's Top 100 Europe award, a prestigious list honoring the most promising private technology ventures from the European business region.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds of submissions across Europe. The nominees were 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 CEO of Red Herring. "The global economic situation has abated and there are many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists. Sonic Emotion’s Absolute 3D sound technology shows great promise and therefore deserves to be among the finalists.”
Finalists for the 2012 edition of the Red Herring Top 100 Europe award were selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health. During the several months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the telecommunications, IT security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, biotech, mobile and other industries completed their submissions to qualify for the award.
