Fast 50 stories May 2017
In 2016, registrations for the Fast 50 programme were up 57% on the year before, an incredible 72 companies entered the race for our coveted Rising Star title, and Belgium was one of the top 10 contributors to the Technology Fast 500 (EMEA region) ranking, with 22 companies included.
We added more value to the programme with our first Fast 50 Business Forum. Over 300 professionals from the world of innovation, technology and investment had the chance to meet Fast 50 and Rising Star nominees, listen to inspiring keynote speakers, and network with the entrepreneurial community.
