IceWarp Selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America Tech Startup

Hollywood, California- June 17, 2011 – IceWarp, a global provider of unified communications and collaboration solutions, announced today it has been selected as a Red Herring's Top 100 North America Startup, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region. The Top 100 award recognizes the leading private companies from Europe, celebrating these companies’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

Red Herring’s Top 100 North America list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe IceWarp embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. IceWarp should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”

“While it’s hard enough to even get on The Red Herring’s radar, it even more challenging to land on the coveted Top 100 list: we are very proud of this achievement,” said Ladislav Goc, President of IceWarp. “We have come this far by offering Unified Communications and Collaboration solutions that allow mobile workers communicate across all platforms and devices taking only time zones into consideration. The Red Herring is right on the mark in validating the value of this approach already recognized by our customers. Every month – and this June was no exception – IceWarp is acquiring dozens of new enterprise accounts in the U.S and across the Globe, bringing organizations to new communications paradigm.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.
