Amsterdam, May 1, 2017 – An Innovative product, management strength, and 20 other criteria have led to a final position in the Red Herring Top 100 Europe award; an international, prestigious award for private technology ventures. This was announced during the official awards ceremony. Blanco was recently also nominated for the Dutch FinTech Awards.
Ground-breaking products of growing Blanco leads to international attention
The Red Herring top 100 has reviewed and analyzed hundreds of European companies, based on a rigorous three-step process that looks at all aspects of the company. Subsequently a selection was made based on 20 criteria. CEO Joost Walgemoed says about the procedure: “although the selection had already started, we generated attention for our company when we announced our new client onboarding module. Based on that, Blanco was allowed a late entry. During the meetings with the organization’s management, it appeared that they were mostly impressed by both the technology and banking know-how of our team.”
Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring says about the Awards: “This year was rewarding, beyond all expectations. There are many great companies generating really innovative and disruptive products in Europe. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists.. Blanco shows great promise and therefore deserves to be among the finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Europe. We know that the 2017 crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact.”
Red Herring analyzes and nominates companies since 2012. Quality of the winners from the past has been proven by the fact that many of these companies were bought by multinationals like Yahoo, Delloite, Thomson Reuters, eBay, Symantic and Google.
