All Square®, the new social network designed exclusively for golfers, is among the 100 finalists selected to present at the Red Herring Top 100 Europe event, taking place in Amsterdam on 7-9 April.

The Red Herring Top 100 Europe event celebrates innovation, entrepreneurship and the exceptional accomplishment of European technology companies as future global players – a prestigious list honouring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the European business region.

The nominees for the Red Herring Top 100 Europe Award are evaluated on 20 main quantitative and qualitative criterion, which include measures of disruptive impact, market footprint, proof of concept, financial performance, technology innovation, social value, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.

On 8 April the Luxembourg-based company will present its new All Square® network which connects the passion and power of people’s love for golf on one completely free, accessible and engaging social media site to a judge and the entire Red Herring forum, comprising venture capitalists, business development executives from large corporates and the media.

Commenting on the finalists for the 2014 edition of the Red Herring 100 Europe award, Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring, said: “This year was rewarding, beyond all expectations. The global economic situation has abated and there are many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products. All Square shows great promise and therefore deserves to be among the Finalists.”

Once all the Finalists have presented their winning strategies at the Red Herring Europe Forum, Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony on the evening of 9 April.

“Red Herring Awards recognise the top companies in the Americas, Asia, Europe, and on a global stage,” commented Patrick Rahme, CEO and co-founder of All Square®. “There would be no higher acclaim than to be among the lucky winners that will be recognised in Amsterdam this year.

“Having showcased our global platform at the Plug and Play Spring EXPO in Sunnyvale, California, we believe All Square embraces the growing trend, power and value social media has brought to businesses globally, and applies it to a more traditional golfing industry.”
