Bivio Networks Named a Red Herring 100 Company
Award recognizes top 100 private companies in North America that drive the technology industry’s future
PLEASANTON, CALIF. — May 11, 2005 – Bivio Networks today announced that it has been named one of the Red Herring Top 100 Private Companies of North America.
“Five years after the dot-com bubble burst, innovation and entrepreneurship are thriving. The companies on this list are proof,” said Red Herring editor-in-chief Joel Dreyfuss.
“We are very excited and honored to be recognized as a Red Herring 100 company,” said Bivio Networks President & CEO Elan Amir. “Making this list builds upon the momentum we have experienced over the last several months, and validates a rapidly growing acceptance among network equipment vendors that our groundbreaking architecture is delivering cost-effective and fully deterministic multi-Gigabit performance for emerging packet handling applications.”
Red Herring’s lists of private companies are an important part of the magazine’s tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Companies like Google and eBay were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors as those that would change the way we live and work.
Red Herring’s editorial staff rigorously evaluated more than 900 private companies through a careful analysis of financial data and subjective criteria, including quality of management, execution of strategy, and dedication to research and development. Red Herring 100 companies will be presenting their business model and strategy at the Red Herring Spring conference. Red Herring Spring will take place May 17-19 at the Monterey Plaza Hotel in Monterey, California.
