SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., June 29 Global media company Red Herring recently named MINDBODY among the 100 most innovative technology companies in North America in 2010. The award was announced at a conference held in San Diego, CA.
Technology industry executives, investors and strategists use the Red Herring 100 list as an instrument for discovering and advocating the most promising private ventures from around the world.
