Trouva, an online marketplace focused on independent bricks-and-mortar boutiques, has been named as one of the best technology scale-ups in the UK for the third year in a row.
Tech5, the annual technology showcase organised by The Next Web (TNW) and Ayden, has selected Trouva following a year of significant European expansion: new locations launched through the platform include Berlin, Amsterdam, Madrid and Copenhagen.
It joins financial technology firm Revolut, energy supplier Bulb, employee engagement service Perkbox and money transfer firm Transfergo on the 2019 technology list.
These UK organisations will be judged against contemporaries from across Europe.
The winning scale-up will be announced at founder’s day of TNW’s annual conference on 8 May in Amsterdam.
Myles Dawson, UK managing director at Adyen, said: “The UK has a proud heritage of innovation and these companies are carrying that tradition proving that this country is an excellent place to start a new business that challenges the status quo.
“From innovative fintech firms, to improving relationships at work, challenging the established energy model or changing how we shop, these companies are not just some of the most exciting organisations in the UK, or Europe, they are making waves on the world stage.”
