Winners cited as continent’s most exciting and innovative private technology companies
Award continues Impartner’s multi-year streak as the most award-winning Partner Relationship Management solution in the market
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH — JUNE 26, 2018 — Impartner, the best-selling and most-award winning pure-play Partner Relationship Management (PRM) solution, today announced it has been named a 2018 Red Herring Top 100 North America winner. Winners are chosen from thousands of entrants and recognize the continent’s most exciting and innovative private technology companies. The award is the latest in a global, multi-year streak of recognition for Impartner including multiple nods for product and executive leadership.
Red Herring winners were judged by industry experts, insiders, and journalists on a wide variety of criteria including financial performance, innovation, business strategy and market penetration. Winners ran the gamut of verticals, from fintech and marketing to security, IoT and many more.
Red Herring’s editors have been evaluating the world’s startups and tech companies for over two decades. It gives them the ability to see through the industry’s hype, to pick firms that will continue on a trajectory to success. Brands such as Alibaba, Google, Kakao, Skype, Spotify, Twitter and YouTube have all been singled out in Red Herring’s storied history. This year’s awards were presented at a special awards ceremony at the Marina Del Rey Hotel in California during two days of keynote speeches, discussions and finalist presentations.
“2018’s crop of Top 100 winners has been among our most intriguing yet,” said Red Herring Chairman Alex Vieux. “What has excited me most is to see so many people forging niches in high-tech and cutting-edge sectors. Some of the technical wizardry and first-rate business models on show here at the conference has been fantastic to learn about. We believe Impartner embodies the drive, skill, and passion on which tech thrives. Impartner should be proud of its achievement: the competition was incredibly strong.”
“Having led a host of tech companies over several decades, it’s incredibly rewarding to be recognized by Red Herring, which has long been prescient in recognizing companies as they break from the pack in their efforts to re-defining industries, paths to markets and technologies,” said Impartner CEO Joe Wang. “This award is not only a nod to our team’s innovative spirit but also the foresight of our customers from world-leading corporations like Xerox and Fortinet, who recognized early on the singular power of a purpose-built PRM SaaS solution to transform the performance of their indirect channel.”
The Red Herring award marks another important milestone in Impartner’s history, which has been on a fast-track since the company’s acquisition just over three years ago.
