The CoSMo Company has been named to the prestigious Red Herring Top 100 Europe proving once again that it is among the most exciting and innovative technology companies in Europe.
CoSMo CEO Hugues de Bantel accepted the award from Red Herring CEO Alex Vieux in Amsterdam on Wednesday evening on behalf of the entire CoSMo team and spoke with pride about what the award meant to the Lyon and San Francisco-based startup.
“In 2016 CoSMo was recognised as the most innovative software developer in France. Now, with this award from Red Herring, we have taken our place among the most innovative technology companies in Europe and, indeed, the wider world,” said de Bantel. “CoSMo’s unique approach to decision management, its software platform, and its core strength in augmenting the intelligence of decision makers in the world’s most complex industries.”
The Red Herring Top 100 Europe awards are widely recognized as one of the industry’s more prestigious recognitions, with hundreds of candidates from each continent competing for a Top 100. Nearly two dozen criteria are used to assess companies in one of the most rigorous processes for ranking technology companies against their peers.
In remarks at the award ceremony, Red Herring’s Vieux reflected on the state of the startup and technology sector in a changing world.
“The level of uncertainty and doubt regarding the future of our world is reaching levels that we had not seen for a very long time. Take the award you received tonight with humility and as a catalyst to impact the world positively. Your role is to take your part in changing the world.”
CoSMo’s success at Red Herring Europe is just the latest in a strong of prizes that the technology company has won in recent years. Earlier in 2017, the company was named to the prestigious Cleantech Global 100 and CoSMo was the 2016 EY-Syntec Numérique Innovation Prize winner.
