Kiwi.com has confirmed its strong position in the world of technology. The company has managed to get among the top five fastest-growing tech companies in the annual Deloitte Global’s Technology Fast 500 EMEA program.

The Deloitte’s program consists of an annual ranking that evaluates technology businesses in three major regions — Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). It focuses on the technology ecosystem and recognizes both public and private companies that have achieved the fastest rates of revenue growth in EMEA over a specific period of time.

With the revenue growth of 14,380 percent between 2014 and 2017, Kiwi.com has ranked fifth out of 500 technology companies from the three regions. 

Overall, this year’s Technology Fast 500 EMEA ranking features winners from 18 countries, with an average growth rate of 969 percent in 2018. Growth for individual companies on the list ranged from 131 percent to 19,900 percent for the same period. Winners were selected based on fiscal-year revenue growth from 2014 to 2017. 

“Kiwi.com started as a simple idea of a new approach towards affordable travel — combining routes operated by carriers that usually don’t cooperate with each other. The revolutionary approach has always been accompanied by a true passion for making travel better, hassle-free and accessible for everyone,” said Kiwi.com CEO and Co-founder, Oliver Dlouhý.  

“From two enthusiasts we have raised the numbers to more than 2,500 employees around the world taking care of millions of bookings every year. We appreciate that our amazing expansion didn’t go unnoticed.”

Kiwi.com recognized by Deloitte for the third year in a row

The Deloitte Global’s Technology Fast 500 EMEA program is supported by Deloitte Global’s Technology Fast 50 initiatives, which rank high-growth technology companies by location or specifically defined geographic area. 

In 2017, Kiwi.com topped the ranking of Deloitte Global’s Technology Fast 50 for Central Europe. Similarly, the company was also named one of the rising stars in the same ranking in 2016.
