Copenhagen, Denmark, 16 April, 2013 – Upfront Chromatography announced today that it has
been selected as a Top 100 Winner for Red Herrring’s 2013 Europe Award, a prestigious list
honoring Europe’s leading private companies and celebrating these companies’ innovations and
technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe list 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.
“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 Upfront
demonstrates the vision, drive and innovation that define a Red Herring winner.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies 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 see past
the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most
promising new business models in Europe.
“We see this award as a recognition that we are on the right track” said Karsten Lindved, CEO
of Upfront. “We are offering a unique technology to the food industry enabling them to produce new, exciting protein products, and combined with a sound business model Upfront is in a
unique position. I am very proud of this award”.
Upfront Chromatography A/S is a Danish high-tech company located in Copenhagen. Upfront
