Hong Kong, China, 2012/09/13 - On the heels of KNOLSKAPE’s award at the Asia Pacific HRM Congress last week, the leading simulations and experiential learning company scooped the Red Herring Top 100 Asia award on September 12, in Hong Kong, China - Knolskape.com.
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Asia.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Asia to the Top 100 Winners. We believe KNOLSKAPE embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. KNOLSKAPE should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”
“We are humbled to be selected among the top 100 private ventures in the world. This recognition is a result of our team’s hard work and dedication. We will continue to innovate and further revolutionize the experiential learning industry through cutting-edge simulations and serious games.”, said Rajiv Jayaraman, Founder-CEO of KNOLSKAPE after receiving the award.

Our mission is to create future ready business leaders and managers by providing them a safe learning environment to hone their skills. Airplane pilots undergo rigorous flight simulator exercises before they are allowed to man an actual aircraft. When stakes are high, when lives are impacted, when actions are unalterable, it is imperative that a learning environment is created where learners experience reality and experiment with their decisions in a safe manner. In a similar manner, business manager’s decisions are often permanent and thus have an immense impact on people’s lives.
