Red Herring is a global media company, which unites the world’s best high technology innovators, venture investors and business decision makers in a variety of forums, including print, online and exclusive events worldwide.
Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Google, Facebook, Kakao, Twitter, Rakuten, Salesforce.com, Xiaomi and YouTube would change the world.
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated Juwai.com on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their peers.
Simon Henry, co-Founder of Juwai.com, said:
“My co-Founder Andrew Taylor and I are extremely proud of the whole team at Juwai.com for building a great company, one that is worthy of such recognition.
“Juwai.com has had success after success this year, and recently was named China’s top international property portal by the country’s peak body, for the second year in a row.
“Our goals for 2016 are to continue to bring together Chinese buyers of international real estate and the real estate agents, sellers and developers who market that property. If we can ensure both sides of that equation get the service and results they deserve, then we will keep growing.”
Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring, said: “Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat.
“After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners.
“We believe Juwai.com embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Juwai.com should be proud of its accomplishment.”
Juwai.com’s Red Herring Top 100 Global award comes after last month’s Top Asia 100 award, in which Juwai.com was named one of Asia’s best private companies. Juwai.com now has 2.6 million monthly visits from Chinese-speaking consumers in 315 cities in China and 48 countries around the world. The portal showcases 2.5 million listings from 89 countries. The company is headquartered in Shanghai, with additional offices in Hong Kong.
