Today we're proud to announce that Stenn has been included in the prestigious FT1000 list as one of Europe's fastest growing businesses.
The sixth annual FT1000 list, compiled by the Financial Times and Statista, is globally recognised as the definitive voice on the most promising high growth European businesses. The list is made up of the European companies that achieved the highest compound annual growth rate in revenue between 2017 and 2020.
Overall, we're ranked as the 156th fastest growing business in Europe, the 33rd U.K. based company and 8th in the fintech category.
This achievement is testament to the hard work and dedication of the Stenn team over the past few years, who have helped establish us as the leading online platform for financing SMEs engaged in international trade.
