San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 15, 2014

Maven, the world’s first professional knowledge logistics platform, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the AlwaysOn Global 100 Companies to Watch. Inclusion in the AlwaysOn Global 100 Companies to Watch signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Maven was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

Maven and the AlwaysOn Global 100 Companies to Watch will be honored at AlwaysOn’s tenth annual Innovation Summit at the Computer History Museum on July 29th and 30th, 2014.

This two-day exclusive event treats attendees to a high-level debate and discourse on top trends and opportunities in the booming digital media, entertainment, on-demand, and cloud computing sectors. The Innovation Summit is produced in an intimate and social setting, where participants can easily meet up, socially network, and make deals happen.

“As users shift from desktop to mobile, and more IT departments turn to the cloud, the Global Silicon Valley is opening up new markets for amazing new apps and services. More and more legacy institutions are being disrupted by technology innovation, and as the headlines ring from coast to coast, demand for efficiency and quality tops decades breaks apart monopolies. This year’s up-and-comers are quickly moving into these new markets and bringing quick, nimble apps to users ready to adapt to technology’s changing landscape,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “The technology marketplace is being driven by the companies that made this year’s AlwaysOn Global 100 Companies to Watch list. We congratulate the AlwaysOn Global 100 Companies to Watch, companies that our editors believe represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in today’s private company marketplace.”

The AlwaysOn Global 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2014 list.
