German ‘bed-in-a-box’ retailer Emma Mattress has been named Europe’s fastest growing startup at the Tech5 Awards, hosted by TNW and Adyen in Amsterdam last week.
It won ahead of Aircall from France, Xceed from Spain, Picnic from the Netherlands, Mentimeter in Sweden and Luno in the UK. This year marked the fifth edition of Tech5, which has been a launchpad for companies such as Transferwise, Delivery Hero, Cabify, Foodpanda and iZettle. Alumni finalists collectively have raised over €10 billion in funding over the last five years.
Max Laarmann, Founder of Emma Mattress, comments: “We are very proud that Emma Mattress is officially the fastest growing startup in Europe with strong sales growth and expansion into 14 European countries. We are happy that the work we have been investing in the revolution of the mattress market for the last two years pays. We have developed a great product that not only simplifies the selection process, but which is helping people getting their best night's sleep.”
