Global Digital Signage Provider selected for prestigious Tech Media 100 list
Europe Unlimited, Europe’s leading network connecting high-tech entrepreneurs to investors and strategic partners through specialized events, today selected EnQii to be on its 2010 Tech Media Invest Top 100 list, in association with The Guardian, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Kemp Little.
The Tech Media Invest Top 100 is a list of today’s hottest and most innovative emerging companies in the ever converging tech and media industries. The Tech Media Invest 100 (TMI) aims to showcase high-growth companies that are developing innovative ways to serve business and consumers, and have the potential to radically change the shape of the technology and media industry.
“We are honoured to have been chosen for the TechMedia Invest 100,” said Ajay Chowdhury, EnQii’s CEO. “We have built up a position as the leading global digital signage supplier over the last several years and look forward to continuing to find ways to innovate and serve our customers better in this rapidly changing field.”
The TMI Advisory Board deployed a detailed process to whittle down a pool of eligible, promising companies to get to the top 100 winners. Evaluations were made on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, innovation, management, global strategy, and ecosystem integration.
Companies showcased entered the list either by applying or by nomination by the Tech Media Invest Advisory Board. The combined efforts of the Board and Selection Committee were used to evaluate companies. The resulting list was approved by Board, which consisted of some of the UK’s most experienced investors in modern technology and media – a mix of venture capitalists, investment analysts, professional advisers and technology lawyers, who applied judgment and identified the best performers and the ones to watch.
