FT1000 – Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies 2018

One hundred seven thousand percent – a number that is hard to grasp. Nonetheless, it is the growth rate of Europe’s fastest-growing company, Deliveroo. The company’s revenue rose from a mere 120,000 GBP in 2013 to a whooping 128,564,000 GBP in 2016, putting it at the top of the ranking “FT1000 – Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies 2018” compiled by the Financial Times and Statista.

Deliveroo is followed in the ranking by the German heating company Thermondo and Traventia Viajes, a Spanish travel company.

The compound annual revenue growth rate between 2013 and 2016 forms the basis for the ranking. To be included in the list, companies had to meet a comprehensive list of criteria. For example, a minimum revenue and independence from other companies had to be proven in order to be eligible.

This second edition of the ranking with awardees from 21 European countries has just been published by the Financial Times and has already caused some excitement on Twitter with the hashtag #ft1000.
