Midaxo, the leader in mergers & acquisitions (M&A) software, announced today that it has received the Red Herring 2015 Top 100 Europe award for delivering an innovative solution that helps companies automate the complex M&A process.
The award recognizes the innovations and technologies of Europe’s leading new private companies and has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring’s editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“We are honored to be selected by Red Herring as a company that is changing the way M&A is managed,” said Kaija Katariina Erkkilä, Midaxo CEO. “Midaxo’s first-of-its-kind solution reduces the complexities and risks of M&As while increasing transparency. We are excited that leading companies have selected Midaxo to help drive a disciplined M&A process across the entire transaction lifecycle, from deal sourcing and due diligence to integration.”
“Selecting startups that show the most potential for disruption and growth is never easy,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “We looked at hundreds and hundreds of candidates from all across the continent, and after much thought and debate, narrowed the list down to the Top 100 Winners. Each year, the competition gets tougher but we believe Midaxo demonstrates the vision, drive and innovation that define a Red Herring Top 100.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the finalists on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, overall business strategy and market penetration. This assessment was complemented by a review of the track records and standings of similar startups in the same verticals, allowing Red Herring to discover the most promising new business models in Europe.
Midaxo recently launched its award-winning M&A solution in the U.S. and established a North American subsidiary to address the growing need to systematize the M&A process. Also, the company recently announced that it had received a 1.5 million euro investment.
