OREM, Utah—May 20, 2008—AtTask, the leading provider of on–demand project and portfolio management (PPM) software, was selected as a winner of the Red Herring 100 North America Award. The award is presented annually to the 100 most innovative private technology companies in North America as selected by the editorial board of Red Herring.
“We are excited to be chosen as a winner of the Red Herring 100 North America award,” said Scott Johnson, CEO of AtTask. “It’s rewarding to be recognized by industry leaders like Red Herring for the innovation AtTask brings to project management software and the way it helps companies get work done.”
Red Herring’s annual lists of top private companies are an important part of its tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. AtTask joins previous winners such as Google, Yahoo!, Skype, Salesforce.com and YouTube that were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors.
"Having received more than 800 submissions, it is clear that we are witnessing a new outburst of creativity." says Joel Dreyfuss, Editor–in–Chief of Red Herring. "With venture capital flowing again, it’s exciting to see technology innovators and business investors collaborate to create disruptive technologies. The Red Herring 100 North America companies are impressive up–and–comers, and definitely the ones to watch."
