LEHI, Utah – June 12, 2017 – Converus has been honored with one of the tech industry’s most prestigious awards. The company is a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award.
Finalists are among the most innovative and brightest private ventures in North America. Their place among the tech elite has been determined by Red Herring’s editorial team, during a many months-long process that considers criteria including disruptive impact, proof of concept, financial performance, market footprint and quality of management.
For over two decades in the tech sector, the Red Herring team has seen through hype to find brands that have become industry benchmarks. Previous Top 100 finalists have included Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter and YouTube.
In addition to being a springboard for some of tech’s biggest names, the Top 100 North America is a valued and trusted tool for venture capitalists, experts and analysts predicting trends at the industry’s sharpest edge.
“Selecting finalists for this year’s Top 100 has proved more difficult than ever,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and chairman of Red Herring. “North America has been tech’s beating heart for years — but never have I seen such an exciting, disruptive and innovative generation as we have in 2017.”
Added Vieux, “Converus fully deserves its place among our finalists, and I’ve every confidence it will make a significant impact in the tech world.”
“What a great honor to be selected as a finalist in the Red Herring Top 100 North America award,” said Converus CEO Todd Mickelsen. “Our company is poised to change the way the world detects deception. Organizations such as the Colombian Air Force, Peruvian central intelligence agency, and the Kent Police Department (Washington state) are already using our solution, EyeDetect, to screen for deceptive individuals in their respective organizations.”
Finalists were invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Top 100 North America conference in Los Angeles, June 12-14.
