For the second time in a row, NEXT Consult was ranked in the Top 1000 list of Europe’s fastest-growing companies by the prestigious international daily newspaper Financial Times. A second entry among the most dynamic companies in Europe is rare and typical to young businesses (startups) and almost unachievable for companies with longer market presence. Being already 10 years on the market, NEXT Consult is among the 37% of the “mature” companies on the FT’s list – established before 2010.
NEXT Consults' absolute growth rate for the period analyzed – between 2015 and 2018 – is 179,3%, and the compound annual growth rate is 40,8%. With such a result entering the Top 1000 list of Europe’s fastest-growing companies is a real challenge: "the competition is tougher this year, with companies requiring a minimum growth rate of 38.4 percent to make the list, compared with 37.7 percent last year, the organizers point out" - analyzers said.
The FT 1000 list is compiled in partnership with the well-known research company Statista. A total of 100 Bulgarian companies participated this year. Most of them represent the technology and fintech industries.
Most winners came from Germany, closely followed by Italy, the UK and France, the organizers pointed out. These four nations account for about 70% of the 1000 most dynamic companies in Europe.
London retains its lead as the city with the greatest number of fast-growing companies. Next Consult has an office in London too, as well as in Zurich, Sofia, Bucharest, and San Diego.
NEXT Consult owes its quick growth to its philosophy: to make business organizations more successful and help them find their way to excellence. Therefore the company’s team of business consulting and digital transformation experts is built by former employees of the consulting giants like Deloitte, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP. Being 10 years on the market, NEXT Consult has already carried out more than 400 successful projects for digitalization and management consulting. NEXT is also a partner of the leading technology platforms for business development, Salesforce.com and SAP.
