Tech5 is back for its 2015 edition. The competition, co-hosted by Adyen, celebrates the fastest-growing tech startups in Europe. The goal of Tech5 is simple: to bring successful European companies the exposure they deserve by spotlighting their momentum with local media, and give them a chance to share their experiences of growing their company.
We announced the opening of the application process at the start of the month and the deadline, set for the 28th of February, is fast approaching.
On the Big Stage
So why should Tech5 be on your radar? The top 5 fastest-growing companies from each participating country will get listed right here on the TNW blog. All companies that make it into the top 5 list of their country will get an invitation to attend the TNW Conference Europe in April.
It doesn’t stop there. The top company from each country will be invited to speak at the TNW Conference Europe. Not only does that mean you’ll be present at one of the largest tech conferences on the continent – but you’ll secure time on stage, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the other Tech5 country winners to share your experiences and opinions.
If all of that sounds good to you, make sure to go and apply. We’ve already gathered over 100 applications, but there’s always room for more.
You can nominate your company (or a company you believe should participate) for Tech5 here. Missed last year’s Tech5? Check out our wrap video below.
