GREENVILLE, SC (June 8, 2017) – Green Cloud Technologies (“Green Cloud”), a 100% channel only, Cisco-Powered cloud provider, has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, one of the technology industry’s most prestigious prizes.
Finalists for the awards are among the continent’s brightest and most innovative private ventures and are chosen by Red Herring’s editorial team, during a months-long process that takes into account criteria including financial performance, market footprint, quality of management, disruptive impact on an industry and proof of concept.
“Selecting finalists for this year’s Top 100 has proved more difficult than ever,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and chairman of Red Herring. “North America has been tech’s beating heart for years – but never have I seen such an exciting, disruptive and innovative generation as we have in 2017.
The Top 100 North America has become not only a springboard for some of tech’s biggest names, but a valued and trusted tool for venture capitalists, experts and analysts predicting trends at the industry’s sharpest edge. For over two decades, Red Herring’s team has seen through the tech sector’s hype to select brands that have become industry benchmarks. Previous Top 100 finalists have included Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube.
“We help our channel partners bring their customers to the cloud with turn-key, cloud-based infrastructure solutions and world-class data center facilities,” said Shay Houser, CEO of Green Cloud. “When we win, our partners really win too.”
“Green Cloud fully deserves its place among our finalists, and I’ve every confidence it will make a significant impact in the tech world,” added Vieux.
The Red Herring Top 100 North America winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony on the evening of June 14 at the event conference in Los Angeles, June 12-14 2017.
