Axtria, a Big Data Analytics software and service provider, is pleased to announce that it has been selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America winner. The list of Top 100 North America award winners recognizes leading private companies from the region, celebrating these startups' innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
"Axtria is honored to be included in the prestigious Red Herring Top 100 North America Winner list along with the most innovative, rapidly growing firms in the country," said Jassi Chadha, CEO of Axtria.

Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring has kept tabs on these up-and-comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work.
"In 2015, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the North America winners. We believe Axtria embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Axtria should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."
Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, DNA of the founders, business model, customer footprint and addressable market. A review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowed Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America, complement this assessment of potential.
