Here are the Tech5 finalists: Europe's fastest growing young startups


A month ago The Next Web and global payments technology provider Adyen partnered to launch the second edition of the European Tech5: an online competition in search of the fastest-growing young startups in Europe. After receiving hundreds of submissions and screening over a hundred companies across six countries in Europe, the list of the fastest growing young tech companies is ready. The Tech5 lists are based on actual revenue and employee data and shows the growth rate between 2012 and 2014.

Patrick de Laive, co-founder of The Next Web explains: "It's amazing to see so many new fast-growing startups this year. Not only are returning applicants from last year doing better than ever, there are a lot of companies on the list who are completely new faces. We should be proud of these highly successful startups here in Europe, and the vibrant hubs that have helped them grow. With Tech5 we want to celebrate those young companies and introduce them to a larger audience."

CCO of Adyen, Roelant Prins, chimes in: "The past month has 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 and ongoing success all over Europe, and we're committed to continuing our support to startups to accelerate their growth."
