Malta, April 15, 2008 Red Herring today announced that Mobiletech AS is a recipient of the Red Herring 100 Europe, an award given to the top 100 private technology companies based in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region each year.
”This year’s impressive list of winners demonstrates Europe’s emergence as a major player in the global technology sector,” said Red Herring Editor-in-Chief, Joel Dreyfuss. ”The exceptional accomplishments of European technology companies and entrepreneurs are a testament to the rapid advancements being made in building the European innovation ecosystem.”
Red Herring’s lists of top private companies are an important part of the company’s tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Companies like Google, eBay and Skype were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors, and touted as leaders that would change the way we live and work.

”Winning this prestigious award just two weeks after being named the most innovative player in the Nordic digital content arena by winning Telenor’s Digital Winners Award 2008, is great acknowledgement of our work. It inspires us to continue our efforts to move boundaries by making useful tools for our customers and user friendly solutions to let consumers enjoy rich and rewarding mobile services”, says Espen Askvik, CEO of Mobiletech.
