Monterey, Calif.—May 23, 2013— Red Herring named ZestFinance a winner of the Top 100 North America Tech Startup award for its innovation in credit underwriting. The Top 100 recognizes the leading private companies in the U.S. and Canada and celebrates these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

“In 2013, selecting the Top 100 achievers was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs have crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe ZestFinance embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. ZestFinance should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation and intellectual property, management quality, business model, customer footprint, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.
