The list of finalists includes some of the best performing and prominent companies of that year. This unique assessment of potential is in addition to a review of the company’s actual track record and standing, 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.
