Topia Named a 2018 Red Herring Top 100 North America Winner

SAN FRANCISCO, (Aug. 7, 2018) – Topia, the Global Mobility Management (GMM) company that enables companies and employees to work everywhere, announced today it has been selected as a winner of Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.

Topia’s technology has defined an entirely new category of software to enable and manage global mobility. Traditional mobility solutions have focused almost exclusively on logistics – moving employees’ belongings from point A to point B. Topia’s technology, selected as a finalist in the Software category, addresses all of these challenges with a solution that puts people first, making mobility management simple, effective and efficient for HR, and ensuring an outstanding employee experience.

Red Herring’s editors have been evaluating the world’s startups and tech companies for over two decades. It gives them the ability to see through the industry’s hype, to pick firms that will continue on a trajectory to success. Companies were judged by industry experts, insiders and journalists on a wide variety of criteria including financial performance, innovation, business strategy and market penetration. Winners ran the gamut of verticals, from fintech and marketing to security, IoT and many more.

“2018’s crop of Top 100 winners has been among our most intriguing yet,” said Vieux. “North America has led the way in tech for so many years, and to see such unique, pioneering entrepreneurs and companies here in California, which is in many ways the heartland of the industry, has been a thrilling experience.

“What has excited me most is to see so many people forging niches in high-tech and cutting-edge sectors,” added Vieux. “Some of the technical wizardry and first-rate business models on show here at the conference has been fantastic to learn about. We believe Topia embodies the drive, skill and passion on which tech thrives. Topia should be proud of its achievement: the competition was incredibly strong.”

Red Herring is dedicated to support Topia’s continued path to success and innovation.
