The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across Asia. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.
"This year was very rewarding," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "The global economic situation has abated and there are many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists. TalentSprint shows great promise therefore deserves to be among the Finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Asia. We know that the 2012 crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact."
The founding team of TalentSprint comprising J.A. Chowdary, Santanu Paul, and Madhumurty Ronanki said, “We are proud to be a finalist for the 2012 edition of the Red Herring 100 Asia award. This is validation that skill enhancement and employability are now a rising concern for all emerging economies. Changing demographics suggest that industry-centric experiential learning must reach young and aspiring professionals, and scale and speed are both important. Looking ahead, TalentSprint has its work cut out.”
