KeyLemon among the top 100 of the 2010 Red Herring 100 Global

As one of the top 100 winners, Idiap's spin-off KeyLemon SA recently participated at the special awards ceremony at the Red Herring Global Conference in Laguna Niguel, California. The Red Herring committee selected the most promising and innovative companies, from a pool of 1'200 around the world, based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health. Five Swiss companies were selected, among them KeyLemon SA, the only one from Western Switzerland (the four others are from the Zurich area).

According to Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring, competition was difficult: “Despite the global economic situation, there were many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products [...] We know that this year’s crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to go far.”
