LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tashequ (She Community) was named a winner of Red Herring's 2016 Top 100 Global award in Los Angeles on November 17. Tashequ was the sole women-focused online firm to be included among the award winners, with the jury recognizing the firm's outstanding contribution to women, and especially Asian women, in terms of personal empowerment, gender equality, confidence in creating and projecting their own unique and distinct personalities as well as creating an environment where women could freely express their opinions online.
The Red Herring editorial team selected finalists originating from over 1,000 companies across more than 40 countries. These companies, who had qualified by having been Red Herring Asia, Europe and North America award winners in their respective regions, were judged on a range of qualitative and quantitative metrics, including but not limited to, innovation in technology, financial performance, history in terms of growth, managerial standards, potential globalization of strategy, and an ongoing increase in market share. "In today's global economy, the transformation taking place due to technology is not only disrupting how we work, but also how we live and think. The immense amount of data and contributions in terms of additions to the vast trove of existing intellectual property combined with the innovation and disruption created by today's entrepreneurs, is touching every sector. More than 300 startups are making their mark in the construction field alone. The list of nominees for the 2016 Red Herring may lead some to conclude that we are experiencing a bubble, yet we can expect that there will be no pause in innovation any time soon. And nothing must be taken for granted in this election year," said Red Herring CEO Alex Vieux. "Speed, creativity and unconventional business models are constantly shifting investment strategies and causing users to modify their behavior - both are demanding more, not less, from entrepreneurs.
