Jasper Design Automation Selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America Company

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- May 30, 2013 -- Red Herring announced its Top 100 award in recognition of the leading private companies from Americas, celebrating the most promising innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects one hundred Award winners, among the 3000 private tech companies financed each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring keeps tabs on the up and comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, Marin Software, Palo Alto Networks, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

"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 Jasper Design Automation embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Jasper should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."

"We are honored to be recognized as one of Red Herring's Top 100 most promising private companies," said Kathryn Kranen, President and CEO of Jasper Design Automation. "Jasper's commitment to working with our customers to push the boundaries of verification technology is not only changing how electronics get verified but also resulting in our rapid growth and strong financial performance. Being recognized for these successes by one of the foremost publications in business and technology further establishes our mark as a leader in business and innovation."

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 private companies 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.
