BERLIN, Feb. 05, 2021 – Leading communication platform provider for IoT EMnify, today announced it has made compamedia’s 2021 Top 100 Top Innovator list. The prestigious list, now in its 28th year, honors medium-sized businesses for their proven commitment to and demonstration of successful innovation. EMnify demonstrated its innovative strength in a methodological pre-selection process.
The selection process
Top 100’s scientific director Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke – also founder and director of the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Vienna University of Economics and Business – examined EMnify‘s innovative strength together with his team of researchers.
EMnify was assessed based on 120 test criteria across five categories. Criteria included whether management promoted innovation, whether the work environment allowed for innovation, a demonstration of innovative processes and organization, and proven success of innovative solutions. The underlining decision was based on whether innovative solutions are the result of a planned approach or a product of chance, and whether solutions succeed on the current market. This year’s Top 100 assessment also called for a unique additional section: entrepreneurial reaction to the coronavirus.
