Fast Growth Icons is the major invitation-only network for well-established, fast-growing businesses.

Reflecting our success and rapid growth, we are proud to be rewarded as one of the most exciting and successful growth businesses of the future and be selected for this exclusive network together with only a few other German companies.

The qualification to become a member includes various strict conditions. Companies have to show considerable traction in terms of revenue, users or funding. The typical network member has revenues in excess of €15 mio. per year, and is growing at over 50% year over year.

In the past years, Europe has been challenging the success of Silicon Valley and maturing into a vibrant tech ecosystem. VC’s from across the globe recognize the potential of many European tech hubs such as Berlin, London and Amsterdam. In fact, Europe has been producing successful start-ups for many years now, however the hurdles that we face of growing to a €100+ mio. business are still very high, but Europe is playing catch up with the US in the unicorn creation tables.

Ben Fletcher, the founder of Fast Growth Icons, is impressed by the imposing growth PARIS made during the last year: “We welcome PARIS as a member and congratulate them for being selected – this is an exclusive achievement reached by only a few German start-ups. We look forward to seeing their business flourish also in the future and hope to support them by our network relationships.”

Sebastian Grodzietzki, Chief Growth Officer of PARIS, remarks: “We are very proud to be awarded for our fast growth and become part of the Fast Growth Icons network. This is a great honour and we look forward to a great collaboration with members like trivago, Flixbus, or Babbel.”
