Netguru has been recognized as one of the driving forces in the 21st century in Europe in the sixth annual FT 1000 ranking. This achievement proves and strengthens our position on the European market, and also confirms our strategy is working.
FT1000 features companies that are the driving force of the economy in the 21st century, generating jobs and maintaining the competitiveness of the European market on the international arena.
The sixth annual list of Europe’s fastest-growing companies, FT 1000, has just been announced and we’re proud to be among such incredible players as Bolt, Tide, Everli, Divido, Monese, Gousto, ID Finance, Kilo Health, Portify, and Solarisbank.
We’re also extremely happy to see Swappie, the Finland-based buyer and seller of refurbished smartphones, taking the first spot, as all environmentally-friendly companies or solutions are close to our hearts and our strategy.
Let’s dive in and break down the factors that have helped us reach this position.
Netguru’s growth is not slowing down
Approximately 20% of all companies listed come from the technology sector. It goes to show that Europe is the right place to seek innovative solutions.
As FT wrote in their article, “the sectoral mix this year is broadly in line with the 2021 ranking: technology leads with a fifth of companies on the list, followed by construction and retail.”.
While Italy is the country with the highest number of entries on this year’s list, what makes us truly glad is the number of Polish companies that made the ranking: CD Projekt, RTB House, Whites Agency, Telemedi, VirtusLab, Spyrosoft, and many more.
“We’re grateful and humbled to be listed in the FT 1000 ranking. This is our fourth appearance in the ranking and a living proof that our growth strategy of becoming an end-to-end consultancy is paying off. It wouldn’t have been possible without the team of over 900 experts strengthening Netguru every day,” says Marek Talarczyk, CEO at Netguru.
Netguru is again proving to be a stable and reliable employer. The FT 1000 ranking covers the years 2017 to 2020. During this period, the Netguru team grew from 199 to over 600 experts and currently, in March 2022, it’s over 900 people strong. The FT 1000 feature would not have been possible but for all teams engaged in growing the company.
Along with the team's growth, Netguru is expanding in the partnerships area by proudly partnering with brands and organizations such as AWS, Google, Microsoft, Adyen, Radar.io, and RTB House.
The recognition by FT 1000 is not the only one Netguru has received over the past few years.
- In May 2021, Netguru was recognized among the top 10 Best Workplaces, Poland in the 2021 edition of the Great Place To Work® listing.
- In March 2020, Netguru was awarded the B Corporation™ certificate, granted to organizations whose previous business activities have been verified in terms of their positive impact on society and the environment.
- In 2020, Netguru and Divante, a global eCommerce solutions company, were recognized by Deloitte for their Tech To The Rescue initiative.
This is even more important now, when Tech To The Rescue has grown exponentially and is actively involved in helping Ukrainian NGOs through the Tech for Ukraine project. If your company would like to contribute, you can find more information on how to join Tech for Ukraine here.
About the FT 1000 ranking
The FT 1000 ranking was created in partnership with Statista. It lists European companies that achieved the highest compound annual revenue growth rate between the years 2017 and 2020. Netguru, along with other listed companies, managed to not only maintain the overall growth – we also proved the pandemic didn’t slow us down. With both the revenue growth and team expansion, these companies are the driving force of the European market.
The full version of the report with case studies and analysis will be released later this month on 21 March in print and online.
