Energy and persistence are the basic ingredients for success

Yesterday we celebrated the successes of the fastest growing companies in the UK. The founders of the 10 fastest growing young tech companies joined us for dinner and we had a great time.

When asking about the secret of their growth it came down to energy (of the founders, of the team) and persistence (believe in your vision).

Many more interesting topics were shared over dinner. How to deal with GDPR, the ever changing role of a CEO, how to keep pushing forward, building a culture for success, internationalisation strategies, monetisation strategies to name a few.

We learned a ton, thanks all for joining. And of course congrats to the 5 fastest growing companies in the UK:
1. Marcus Swanepoel from Luno
2. Mandeep Singh from Trouva
3. Tom Brooks from Elder
4. Mathijs Eefting from Moteefe
5. Taymoor Atighetchi from Papier

A big thank you to Myles Dawson - Adyen Managing Director, UK and Reshma Sohoni (Seedcamp) for hosting the evening and being an ambassador of the UK tech scene. Looking forward to see you all at the European TECH5 Founders Dinner in Amsterdam during #TNW2018 ( )
