MediSapiens chosen as a 2016 Red Herring Top 100 Europe Winner
The recognition solidifies MediSapiens’ position as the leading Bio-IT provider for life science and bio-business.
Helsinki, Finland – April 19, 2016 – MediSapiens, a Bio-IT solution provider offering cutting-edge genomic, biomedical and clinical platforms and digitization for life sciences and bio-business, today announced that it has been selected a winner of the 2016 Red Herring Top 100 Europe award.
Red Herring announced its Red Herring Europe award winners last week at the Top 100 forum in Amsterdam, recognizing Europe’s leading private companies and celebrating these companies’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries. MediSapiens was recognized as an industry-leading provider of need-driven Bio-IT solutions, serving customers across life science and bio-business segments including pharma, biotech, CROs, biobanks, diagnostics and personalized medicine.
The Red Herring Top 100 Europe Winner selection was made from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies in the European Region. Since 1996, Red Herring’s Top 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying most promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring’s editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Kakao, Skype, SuperCell, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube would change the way we live and work.
“In 2016, 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 Europe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe MediSapiens embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. MediSapiens should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, overall business strategy and market penetration. This assessment was complemented by a review of the track records and standings of similar companies in the same verticals, allowing 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 Europe.
“We are excited and honored to win this award, demonstrating the strength of our offering and strategy”, said Sami Kilpinen, CEO of MediSapiens. “This recognition solidifies our position in providing intuitive, science-backed tools for effective utilization of the vast amount of genomic, biomedical and clinical data that is gathered all around the world. We continue on this path and are committed to help our customers gain success and growth in their business and research endeavors.”
