Telerik wins Red Herring Global 100

In case you haven't noticed, Telerik is growing. We are constantly working in new directions to support .NET developers and deliver all of the tools and UI components that developers need to be successful. If we make your job easier, we've done our job. From our humble roots in 2002 making UI components for ASP.NET, then a fledgling platform from Microsoft, to 2009 where we offer UI components for ASP.NET AJAX, ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight, WPF, and WinForms, and tools like OpenAccess ORM, Telerik Reporting, JustCode, WebUI Test Studio, and the popular Work Item Manager and Project Dashboard for TFS- not to mention our investment in CMS with Sitefinity- we've come a long ways.

It's always an honor, then, to see your efforts recognized in a significant way. Telerik was recognized in a big way by being named to the Red Herring Global 100 list for 2009. The Global 100 lists the top 100 private tech companies in the world. Last year, Telerik placed on the Europe 100, so this year's jump to the Global list is a huge step forward. In the past, companies like Google, YouTube, Skype, and Yahoo have been recognized with this award (and we all know where those companies are today). Other recognized companies on 2009's Red Herring lists include Parallels, Twitter, and Ustream.
Of course, none of this is possible without your continued support and feedback. We drive our business in direct response to your input, so keep it coming. With our new PITS system and some exciting plans for 2010, we're confident that this will be another big year for Telerik, and I can't wait to be part of the progress.
In the mean time, thank you for your support. And thank you to Telerik for taking the bet on me more than 3 years ago. Here's to our continuing global domination in the name of making .NET developers more productive!
