We are one of the Top 250 ScaleUp companies in the Netherlands
4th June, 2021 – Etten-Leur, the Netherlands.
Despite the tough times we find ourselves during the COVID-19 pandemic, Future Connections has been named in the annual Top 250 Scaleup 2021 report as one of the fastest growing companies in the Netherlands.
In its 5th year, the annual monitor report is the outcome of a long-standing cooperation between the Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship, part of the Rotterdam School of Management at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam, and Nlgroeit, an initiative of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, Chamber of Commerce, NLevator and NL2025.
Like all the 250 innovative companies named in this year’s report, Future Connections has bucked the trend and ensured growth at a time when all aspects of our lives have been challenged, the economic growth of all countries has been jeopardized and the job market has been shaken to its core. Julien Beenakkers, our CEO, commented: “The demand on communication and digitalization has accelerated over the last decade, but the COVID-19 pandemic has directly influenced the speed of such acceleration. The demand for our customer operations services and our network intelligence, analytics and automation services has increased and has supported the expansion of our staff. We are always on the look-out for talented people as we strive to deliver top quality services to telecommunication operators and enterprises in the Netherlands and abroad.”
To be included in the Top 250 Scaleup annual report, Dutch companies must achieve an average annual growth of at least 20% in full time-equivalent (FTE) and/or turnover between December 2017 and December 2020. In addition, they must be at least 10 FTE in size and/or have a turnover of at least 5 million euro at the start of the measurement period.
