ByNoGame Named in Europe's Top 100 Companies
RED HERRING 100 WINNER
ByNoGame, the digital game distribution company operating in the Güzelbahçe district of Izmir, was listed amongst the Top 100 Red Herring Europe’s most prestigious list. Red Herring, which enlists promising private tech startups in Europe, handed out the Europe Top 100 awards at a ceremony held in Amsterdam last week. ByNoGame, a game company operating in Izmir and established with 100% domestic capital, has become one of the top 100 companies in Europe. This year, only Insider and ByNoGame from Turkey were included in the most prestigious list in Europe. The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across Europe. The nominees are evaluated on 20 main quantitative and qualitative criteria including disruptive impact, market footprint, proof of concept, financial performance, technology innovation, social value, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries. "ByNoGame promises a good future.” During the event, Alex Vieux, publisher, and CEO of Red Herring which has listed Europe's 100 companies that are new, innovative, entrepreneurial, promising, and strong in technology since 1996, said: “In 2017, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat. In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early in the European tech ecosystem. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation, and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Europe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe ByNoGame embodies the vision, drive, and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. ByNoGame should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong. Following ByNoGame’s well-deserved win, they will be participating in the competition to earn a spot in the Global Top 100 in November 2017. Red Herring is dedicated to following ByNoGame's path to further success and innovation." Stating that in eight years, they started to spend more time in Turkey in order to raise awareness for young entrepreneurs in Europe and to create financial opportunities for them, Vieux said, "You should know that every investor in Europe reads the Europe Top 100 List from the moment it is announced. They are trying to realize which decision is right. We worked hard for Turkey. We even visited Turkey for a few events. This is very important because Turkey is a pivotal country. Your enthusiasm, innovation, and spirit inspire us, at least me.” Murat Kömürcü, CEO of ByNoGame, stated that they are extremely pleased to be included in the list, but that this is not a coincidence. Kömürcü explained his satisfaction with being on such a prestigious list: "Red Herring 100 European finalists are selected according to their technological innovations, management power, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial situation. As ByNoGame, we are a company that always innovates and keeps customer satisfaction at the highest level. Our innovations reflect on us and the business world as inspiring innovations. We are aware of our mission and we undertake it. ByNoGame, which best understands the gaming world, streamers, e-sports ecosystem, and the expectations of gamers, will soon take on a structure that includes everything digital and physical about the world of gamers. Success was with us and will be with us again. Thank you for your love and support."
