About the Tech5

The European Tech5 is a competition co-hosted by Adyen and The Next Web aimed at finding the fastest-growing startup across six European markets; the UK, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, France, and Spain. Unlike similar competitions, the Tech5 is based on actual revenue and employee data to find the fastest growth rate among entrants between 2013 and 2016. The main entry criteria for the Tech5 were that a company must have launched in 2011 or later, have generated more than €200,000 in revenue (2015), and have built its own (scalable) product or service, driven by technology.
