    At TNW, we love fast growing tech startups – telling their stories and celebrating their growth. This is why we have decided to partner with Adyen – for the fourth year in a row – to host our acclaimed Tech5 competition.  For Tech5, we focus on one key figure: Revenue growth.

    We’ve witnessed the exponential growth of the European tech scene. Ecosystems all over the continent are maturing at an extreme pace, providing a launchpad for tech companies like Transferwise, Delivery Hero, Cabify, Foodpanda and iZettle – all which have shown massive increases in revenue in a short period of time.

    TNW – with its community and ability to bring people together- and Adyen, itself still a fast-growing startup with lots of real world experience to share, are a great building block for any tech company looking to take that next step – or to make that next leap.

    Together, TNW and Adyen will scout Germany, the UK, Spain, France, Sweden and the Netherlands to find the fastest growing tech company. The winner from each nation will be announced at an event in each country. Afterwards, we’ll invite the six winners from each country on stage at TNW Europe on May 18-19, 2017 for the final awards ceremony.
