The Telegraph recently announced their list of Europe’s Top 100 startups and we’re so pleased to have made the list, in the Education category. We’ve won quite a few awards already, but we’re particularly pleased to be on this list, as it was compiled by some of the top venture capitalists and tech executives from Europe and Silicon Valley. We believe we can change how research is done, so it’s a great affirmation to hear that others also believe in the work we’re doing.
Pressure, the good kind, is continuing to build up. We are being named, listed, and watched.
Just a month ago, Mendeley was named as the start-up most likely to change the world for the better at The Guardian Activate 2010 Summit. What better encouragement could there be, we thought. We jumped up and down, patted each other on the back, took a deep breath, then went back to work so that we can live up to the prediction.
Today, UK-based Telegraph released another list, Top 10 European Technology Companies of 2010, compiled by PROfounders Capital’s Brent Hoberman, the co-founder of Lastminute.com, and Rogan Angelini-Hurll, who formerly headed the Citi Pan European Media Research team.
Mendeley is listed as no. 5. That’s one step up from being ranked 6th in the Guardian/TechMediaInvest 2009 list of Top 100 Tech Companies.
Stepping up to the plate one rank at a time… Go Team!
