Vensa Health makes finals of 2013 Red Herring Top 100 Asia Award

Auckland, 14 August 2013 – Vensa Health announced today it has been selected as a finalist for Red Herring's Top 100 Asia award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the Asian business region.

Vensa Health is the leading mobile health (mHealth) solutions provider in New Zealand focusing on delivering mobile health innovations worldwide.

Ahmad Jubbawey, CEO of Vensa Health said, “It's a great honour to be named as a finalist. We're in a very exciting growth phase. We have around 70% of the market using our innovative system in New Zealand and we’re now focused on leveraging this position in South East Asia.”

The company has a vision of closing the gap for people’s health, one by one targeting to touch 500 million people worldwide. The company has just completed an implementation with Vibhavadi Hospital in Bangkok, with a local telco AIS providing the telecom infrastructure.

Vensa Health’s mobile health interactive communication platform and services allow health providers to deliver appointment, medication reminders, health advice, screening and immunisation reminders to enable pro-active health management to the patient in the most personal and direct way. The company is investigating substantially into R&D to facilitate healthcare in your pocket.

The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across Asia. The nominees are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.

This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of company track records and standings, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable tool for discovering and advocating for the best business opportunities in the industry.

"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. (Insert Company Name) 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.”

The finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Asia Forum in Hong Kong, Sept. 3 to 5, 2013. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of Sept. 5 at the event.
