beqom, the provider of a cloud-based total compensation solution, today announced its placement in the 2019 Tech Tour Growth 50, a group of Europe’s most promising tech scale-up companies with “unicorn” potential.
The Tech Tour Growth 50 is the result of an annual research project run by Tech Tour, a community that helps high-tech growth companies develop strategic relations with investors. This year, Tech Tour researched and evaluated, with a selection committee of international investors, more than 280 European private tech companies at a sub-one billion US dollar valuation.
This is beqom’s second consecutive year of inclusion in the Growth 50. In 2018, the company was also awarded the Tech Tour Special Jury Prize.
“Putting employees at the top of the list, not just talking about it, is something very few companies do. It means spending time defining your company culture instead of selling your product. That’s what we have done,” said Fabio Ronga, beqom CEO. “It’s through this people-first approach that we’ve achieved such growth and success.”
The selection committee made its decisions by taking into account prospective companies’ achievement, impact, and momentum.
“We are delighted to recognize beqom in The Tech Tour Growth 50 for 2019,” said William Stevens, Managing Director, Tech Tour. “When we launched the Tech Tour Growth 50 five years ago, only 127 companies qualified for selection; this year we had 312. Each year our work is becoming more difficult. There are now so many great European tech success stories. This makes beqom’s inclusion in the Tech Tour Growth 50 a real mark of success.”
The CEOs of the selected companies, including beqom, will gather at the annual Tech Tour Growth Forum in Geneva from March 28-29, where two companies will be announced as the 2019 Tech Tour Growth Award and Tech Tour Innovation Award winners.
