We believe API7.ai embodies the vision, drive, and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. API7.ai should be proud of its accomplishment as the competition was robust."

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 "hype" and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world. Red Herring is dedicated to following API7.ai’s path to further success and innovation.
