Dream11 Gaming was conceptualized by a group of cricket enthusiasts with a goal to create the world’s best fantasy cricket platform, where millions of fans could not only select and manage their ‘Dream11’ but also compete and connect with the global cricket community. Dream11 was founded in 2008 and its founder member and Chief Operating Officer Yashraj Vakil had helped start its entire business line ground-up by creating the business plan, revenue projection, marketing and sales strategies, recruitment and product development roadmap.
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 record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list an invaluable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the greatest business opportunities from around the world.
“Choosing the best out of the previous three years was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed down our list from 1,200 potential companies to 200 finalists. Trying to get it down to 100 companies was a task upon itself. Dream11 should be extremely proud of its achievement as the competition was difficult.”
Red Herring’s Global 100 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 Google, Skype, Netscape, Salesforce.com, YouTube, eBay and many others would change the way we live and work.
