A month ago The Next Web and global payments technology provider Adyen partnered to launch a new online competition in search of Europe’s fastest growing tech startups: the European Tech5. After receiving hundreds of submissions and screening over a hundred companies across seven countries in Europe, the list of the fastest growing young tech companies is ready, and imgZine is in it! The Tech5 lists are based on actual revenue, traffic and employee data and show the growth rate between 2011 and 2013.
CCO of Adyen, Roelant Prins, chimes in: “The past few weeks have been very exciting. Adyen is lucky to be in a position to work with many startups and help them grow by accepting payments from all over the world. We are thrilled to see so much new activity all over Europe and we’re committed to continue our support to startups to accelerate their growth.”
The Dutch Tech5 list
The winners of each country are invited to present their company and represent their country at TNW Europe Conference (24-25 April) in front of Europe’s leading crowd in tech and marketing. Without further ado, here is the Dutch Tech5 list:
Proud to be a leader in the mobile publishing industry
Within a remarkably short period of 2.5 years, imgZine has grown from a small team to a budding enterprise with 40 employees and offices in the Netherlands, the United States and Greece. imgZine’s digital publishing platform, which helps enterprises, publishers and brands publish beautiful real time magazines for mobile devices, has turned the company into an industry leader in the mobile publishing space. Clients include renowned brands like ING, Rabobank, ABN AMRO, De Volkskrant and world events like the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS).
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 Tech5 is here to celebrate those young companies and reveal them to a larger audience.” So, congratulations to the other companies as well!
