E-bike manufacturer and LEVA-EU member QWIC is proud to announce that it has been awarded as both a Top 250 Growth Company, and FD Gazelle 2021. Both prizes are awarded to the fastest growing companies in the Netherlands.
The Financieele Dagblad has awarded QWIC for the second time with an FD Gazellen Award. The FD Gazellen Awards are presented to the fastest growing companies in the Netherlands, with QWIC being honoured in the western region, and large categories. Criteria include a turnover growth in the previous three years of at least 20%, with the last year closing at a profit. The official award ceremony will take place on November 25.
QWIC is also included in the Top 250 Growth Companies 2021. The Top 250 Growth Companies is based on the ScaleUp Dashboard of the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), and the Erasmus Center for Entrepreneurship (ECE), and is drafted in collaboration with nlgroent. The list is an overview of companies (scale-ups) with a minimum of 10 FTE (Full-Time Equivalent) and/or a turnover of at least 5 million euros. These companies realized an annual growth of at least 20% in FTE and/or turnover for three consecutive years.
Not only in terms of turnover, the QWIC team has also expanded considerably in recent years. Since January this year, QWIC has increased by 38 FTE. The team now consists of about 140 employees. The 250 growth companies are an important growth and innovation engine for the Dutch economy, and collectively, they are responsible for creating +30,000 jobs.
