The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds of Asian companies. The nominees were evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, including financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.
This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list an invaluable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry. Finalists for the award are selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health.
Druva Software has an impressive list of early customers, including companies like NASA, Xerox, Emerson, Brunswick, and MetLife. In addition to its selection as a Red Herring Asia 100 Finalist, Druva also announced recent customer wins with Merz Pharma, Siemens and Schlumberger.
