We are thrilled to announce that in the past month we were the recipients of two prestigious awards, Colorado Companies to Watch and Red Herring North America 100.
Colorado Companies to Watch honors 50 Colorado-based companies that demonstrate high performance in the marketplace, innovation in their product or service, and leadership in their field. Presented by the Edward Lowe Foundation, the companies that receive this award are chosen based on their valuable product, contribution to the Colorado economy by providing quality jobs, and positive impact on the community. The resulting list pulls from many industries, from organic foods to engineering firms, and we are honored to be in such great company.
The Red Herring North America 100 recognizes the most promising private ventures on the continent. This list is based off rigorous criteria including financial performance, market penetration, management quality, and technological innovation. Later this year, SendGrid will compete for a spot on the Red Herring Global 100 list.
At SendGrid we are working to make email simple and easy for developers. We are extremely proud of our performance and how it reflects on Colorado, a state with such a strong entrepreneurial spirit. We are very excited that our innovations have been recognized as the best in our industry.
