Red Herring has crowned its Top 100 North America winners, at a special dinner and awards ceremony in California. The event, held in Marina Del Rey, concluded 2018’s Top 100 event, during which entrepreneurs and investors were treated to two days of keynote speeches, roundtable discussions and presentations by dozens of North America’s best and brightest tech companies.
“This year is one of the strongest groups of startups I’ve ever seen here,” said Red Herring chairman Alex Vieux at the ceremony. “It just shows how vibrant the tech scene is in this part of the world.” Winners span the gamut of modern technology, from cybersecurity and storage to AI, robotics and healthcare.
The awards were handed out as tech stocks supercharged topsy-turvy American markets. The Nasdaq composite hit an all-time high this month, as investors shake off jitters from news of impending regulation and US President Donald Trump’s trade war with China, among other headlines.
We’ll publish a full list of winners here later this week. Keep updated with the Top 100 – and all Red Herring‘s editorial and event news – on our Twitter feed, @digitalherring.
