‘European Tech5’, or the 5 fastest growing startups from 7 European countries: UK, Germany, France, Belgium, Sweden, Spain, The Netherlands

A few weeks ago The Next Web and global payments technology provider Adyen partnered to launch a new kind of competition in search of Europe’s fastest growing startups: the ‘European Tech5’. After receiving submissions and screening over a hundred companies across seven European countries, the the fastest growing tech startups have been decided. The ‘Tech5’ lists are based on actual revenue, traffic and employee data, as well as the growth rate between 2011 and 2013.

Patrick de Laive, co-founder of The Next Web explains: “It’s amazing to see how many fast growing companies there are in Europe. Besides the ones that made it to the lists, we’ve seen a ton of other companies that make significant revenues and continue to grow. We should be proud of these highly successful companies here in Europe.”

The winners of each country are invited to present their company and represent their country at TNW Europe Conference on 24-25 April in front of Europe’s leading crowd in tech and marketing.

So here they are – the Tech5 lists (Update – May 2023: The micro wesites for each country seem to be out of use, so we therefore deactivated the original links):
