LOS ANGELES, CA – November 6, 2014 – Leadbolt, the next generation mobile marketing platform and leader in mobile app monetization and app discovery, today announced that it has been selected as a candidate for Red Herring’s 2014 Top 100 Global award, a prestigious recognition honoring the year’s most audacious and far-reaching private technology companies and entrepreneurs from across the globe.
Previous winners include such disruptors as Google, Yahoo, Skype, Netscape, Salesforce.com, YouTube and eBay.
This announcement comes on the heels of Leadbolt’s most recent product roll-out, Direct Deals Marketplace – where app developers across every app category can connect directly with premium advertisers to find partners that are the best match, in a 100% transparent environment.
“As the world relies more heavily on mobile devices and apps for everything from banking to entertainment, we’re making strides on a global scale to help keep apps free for users. Leadbolt is proud of our commitment to providing app developers with the tools and development resources they need to stay profitable and get their apps discovered,” said Leadbolt founder and CEO, Dale Carr. “The recognition from Red Herring affirms these efforts and keeps our team motivated to do our very best. On behalf of the Leadbolt team, we look forward to serving the mobile app developer community for years to come.”
The Red Herring editorial team selected the companies demonstrating the most innovative technologies and business models originating from over 1,000 companies from more than 40 nations. These companies, representing past Red Herring Asia, Europe and North America awards, are judged on a range of qualitative and quantitative metrics, including but not limited to, technology innovation, financial performance, growth criterion, management’s execution standards, potential globalization of the strategy, and market share improvement.
“Technology companies are becoming the bright spot in the economic outlook based on their increasing role within macro-economic environments,” stated Alex Vieux, Red Herring chairman. “2014 has demonstrated the sector’s vibrant activity and its contribution to the global economic recovery. An unprecedented number of entrepreneurs are jumping ahead of the competition and making a difference. Constant breakthroughs make recent developments obsolete faster than ever before. Leadbolt is performing exceptionally well in its field and strongly deserves to be singled out as one of the Red Herring Global finalists. At this stage, we are left with the daunting task to select the best qualified companies for the 2014 Top 100 Global Award.”
