NANOIDENT Technologies Named as a Winner of 2007 "Red Herring 100 Global" Award
Linz, Austria | Posted on December 6th, 2007
Red Herring 100 winners and finalists from North America, Europe and Asia of the last three years were eligible for this award. The Red Herring editorial team used a very competitive process to whittle down this pool of 1800 eligible promising companies to the 100 winners of this first-time award. All Red Herring 100 companies are evaluated based on both quantitative and qualitative criteria such as financial performance, technology innovation, management, and ecosystem integration; Global winners are also judged on global strategy, and must be set to handle the challenges of internationalization and a global presence.
"We are extremely pleased to again be recognized as an innovative global leader," said NANOIDENT CEO Klaus G. Schroeter. "By making it possible and cost-effective for electronic components and even complete circuits to be placed directly onto a variety of surfaces, printed semiconductor technology has the power to change the face of countless industries, enabling new products that will enhance healthcare, security, and the environment."
For NANOIDENT, the year 2007 has been full of significant achievements; in March Red Herring named the company a finalist for its100 Europe 2007 list, and in October Ernst & Young Austria awarded NANOIDENT's founders the prestigious Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Meanwhile subsidiary BIOIDENT was also recognized both by analyst firm Frost & Sullivan and with the Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Award. In March NANOIDENT opened the doors to its ORGANIC FAB, the world's first factory for printed semiconductor-based sensors, and the company is developing groundbreaking solutions in partnership with a number of leading companies in the medical diagnostic, environmental testing, security and IT industries.
The winning companies were announced and celebrated at the Red Herring Global event in Seattle, WA, on December 3 - 5.
