Coupa Software Selected as a 2015 Red Herring Top 100 Global Winner

SAN MATEO — December 3, 2015 —Coupa Software, a leading cloud-based spend management company, today announced that it has been selected as a Red Herring Top 100 Global Winner. The award recognizes the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia, celebrating their innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring 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.

"We are honored to be a part of Red Herring’s elite Global 100 Winners," said Roger Goulart, vice president of business development and alliances at Coupa. "This gives us confidence that our approach to bringing consumer innovations to enterprise software offers true value, and arms our customers with the tools and support needed to succeed.”

“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “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 Coupa embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Coupa should be proud of its accomplishment.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track records and standing of startups relative to their 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 from around the world.
