TellmeTwin.com, a people matching and content recommendation website, today announced it has been named a winner of the Red Herring 100 Europe, an award given to the top 100 private technology companies based in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region each year.
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.
“During a difficult year, Red Herring still received an impressive list of submissions from companies across the EMEA region, clearly demonstrating Europe’s role as a major centre of innovation in the global technology sector,” said Red Herring Managing Director, Farley Duvall.
“A recognition such as the Red Herring 100 is very important to TellmeTwin and confirms our commitment to really make a difference in the world of social networks and recommendations solutions,” said Einar Sigvaldason, CEO of TellmeTwin, which is based in Iceland. “TellmeTwin is a qualitative recommendation network where users discover content based on how well they match with other people. You can also think of it as a hybrid that utilizes data mining and human interaction.”
Red Herring honoured the Red Herring 100 Europe finalist companies at its 2009 Conference, which was held March 31- April 2, at the Berlin Radisson Hotel. Red Herring’s editorial staff rigorously evaluated several hundred private companies through a careful analysis of financial data and subjective criteria, including quality of management, execution of strategy, and dedication to research and development.
