Avaus Marketing Innovations has been chosen as a member of the Fast Growth Icons network for European fast-growing businesses. The network consists of scale-ups, i.e. companies that grow by over 50% per year with revenues of more than 15 M€ and with the potential to reach 100 M€.
According to Fast Growth Icons founder Ben Fletcher, membership is recognition that Avaus is one of the most interesting and successful growth businesses in the Nordic region: “We welcome Avaus and congratulate the company on being selected. It’s a really impressive achievement. We look forward to seeing their business flourish in the future.”
Fletcher says that Europe has been challenging the success of Silicon Valley during recent years and is now maturing into a vibrant tech ecosystem. VCs from across the globe recognize the potential of many European tech hubs, such as Berlin, London, and Amsterdam.
“Europe has been producing successful startups for many years now. However, the hurdles that we face of growing a $100m+ business are still very high and Europe is playing catch up with the US in the unicorn creation tables.”
Fast Growth Icons’ mission is to bridge the gap from startups to large-scale businesses. The network brings together fast growing businesses from across Europe, such as Amorelie, Liefery, Flixbus, Ratepay, N26, Outfittery, Carmundi, PayONE, SumUp, and WeFox. At Fast Growth Icons’ events, scale-ups share practical insights and experiences among themselves.
Avaus is an invited participant at the 2017 Berlin event on May 18th. The event will host well-known and established speakers such as Markus Fuhrmann, Founder of Delivery Hero, and Rolf Schroemgens, Founder of Trivago.
