Europe is finally recovering, if not evenly, from the financial crisis. Part of the recovery is being aided by flourishing start-ups and fast-growing companies around the continent that are posting healthy revenue figures and providing employment. Statista and the Financial Times have prepared the second edition of the FT 1000
which lists the companies in 31 different European countries that have recorded the highest annual compound growth rate in revenue between 2013 and 2016.
With many of Europe's cities clogged with brightly-clad cyclists delivering takeaway meals, UK company Deliveroo grabs top spot. It was way ahead of all other companies on the list with an absolute growth rate of 107 percent from 2013 to 2016. Interestingly with Brexit swiftly approaching, London is home to most of Europe's fastest growing businesses. It has 74, ahead of Paris which has 62 and Milan's 25. Read more about the ranking here.
