MONTEREY, CA – May 29, 2013 – Taykey, whose unique Topical Advertising technology delivers ads to a marketers target audience based on what that audience is interested in at any given moment, was selected from over a thousand entries as one of Red Herring’s North America 100, an award honoring the continent’s most promising private companies. Taykey was selected by Red Herring’s editorial staff based on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, intellectual property and market penetration. Taykey was the only advertising technology company of the several semifinalists to be included in the 100 winners.
Winners were announced May 28th at a ceremony in Monterey, CA, by Red Herring CEO Alex Vieux. “In 2013, selecting the Top 100 achievers was by no means a small feat” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs have crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Taykey embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Taykey should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Taykey CEO Amit Avner said, “We are not only pleased to be selected by Red Herring but to be honored alongside some incredible companies. Winning this award is a great validation of our mission to change media by more closely aligning the advertiser with what their audience truly cares about right now.”
