It's here, these are the 5 fastest growing young tech companies in seven countries in Europe.

11 APRIL 2014, EUROPE

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. The Tech5 lists are based on actual revenue, traffic and employee data and shows 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 Tech5 is here to celebrate those young companies and reveal them to a larger audience."

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."

"It's amazing to see how fast these companies are growing. Germany is clearly amongst the top 3 countries in Europe where companies can florish. They have the advantage of a big home market, but the modern German tech entrepreneur is succeeding across the border as well. Something to be proud of in Germany and in Europe" Patrick de Laive - Co-founder The Next Web
