“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe TouchBistro embodies the vision, drive, and innovation that defines a successful entrepreneurial venture. TouchBistro should be proud of its accomplishment.”
