Terato tech wishes welcome back to everyone from the long holiday of Hari Raya, summer and to certain people, school holiday. We really hope everyone feel refreshed and ready for the challenges ahead in remaining months of the year.
Anyway, we received a good news yesterday (not yet great, but very hopeful for that) as our beloved Terato has been shortlisted in the annual Red Herring 100 Asia Finalist for 2013.
Red Herring is best known for its Red Herring Top 100 technology awards and hosts several international conferences each year. Red Herring began as a technology business magazine, which flourished during the dot com boom, with global distribution and bureaus in Bangalore, Beijing, and Paris. Red Herring 100 Asia 2013, featuring the CEOs and founders of the award winning companies, is the perfect occasion to celebrate the exceptional accomplishment of Asian technology companies and entrepreneurs, while exploring the future of the region as a global player.
Some excerpt from the press release on Terato’s inclusion to the list:
“Entrepreneurship in Asia has reached an inflexion point, and as a result Red Herring Asia 2013, has shifted into a new phase,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. ” A second generation of entrepreneurs with CEO backgrounds is emerging and their execution skills and global ambitions lead to restless growth and amazing journeys. As importantly, we are seeing more companies from countries once absent from innovation circles. Terato shows great promise and therefore deserves to be among the finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Asia. We know that the 2013 crop will reward us for long and continued efforts in scouting disruptive companies in Asia. The wealth of talent and achievements displayed by Red Herring Asia finalists is an excellent predictor for the new world rising.”

As one of the few Malaysian companies (we believe, 4) that has been selected into list for this year award, We are really hopeful for this to be Terato’s stepping stone or platform to be recognized as one of the technologies premier player in this region.
