Deloitte, the largest professional services organization in the world, publishes once a year a ranking called Fast 50 – which is the one and only ranking focusing solely on technology companies from Sweden. Together with the Fast 50 companies Deloitte also acknowledges the 25 fastest growing tech companies from Sweden which were launched between 3 and 5 years ago. This sub-category is called “Rising Stars”, and in this year’s edition – which is the 8th in total – Twingly is one of the nominated companies!
The criteria for the Rising Stars are the same as for the Fast 50, with the only difference being the years of existence. Hence you could call the Rising Stars a ranking for Swedish tech startups, whereas the candidates for Fast 50 are rather well established companies.
Of course we are very proud to be among the top 25 young technology companies from Sweden competing for the number one spot – especially considering many of the other well-known Swedish tech startups nominated by Deloitte: There we have the EpiServer Group, makers of the popular Episerver CMS system, elskling, an up and coming website for price comparison between Electricity providers, or Oxify, which develops Internet access solutions for the public transport sector.
On November 2 Deloitte will host an event at the Modern Museum in Stockholm to present the Fast 50 and Rising Stars ranking and to announce which 2 companies will be Swedens top technology stars! If you want to attend and give us applaud you can register here (Website in Swedish). Martin, Anton, Marcus & Kristoffer will be there from Twingly – make sure to say hi!
