Fast Growth Icons is the invitation-only network for well-established, fast-growing businesses. The network brings together the founders and CEOs of later-stage startups to discuss the practical realities of building a $100m+ revenue business. The 2017 Berlin event on the 17th to 18th May in the Ritz-Carlton hotel is hosted to help bridge the gap between medium and large-scale businesses. Edwin van Rest, CEO and co-founder of Studyportals, will come together with other fast growing businesses across Europe such as Flixbus, N26, Carmundi and WeFox to share practical insights and experiences on future growth.

To qualify as a member, companies have to show considerable traction in terms of revenue, users or funding. With over 19 million users in 2016, the fast-growing international study choice platform Studyportals helps prospective students to find and compare study programmes globally. Since its foundation in 2009, the company published 114,000 courses from over 2,450 participating universities around the world to make education choice transparent, globally.

Edwin van Rest, CEO of Studyportals, shares his response to the invitation of Fast Growth Icons:

“We are proud to be selected as a member for this year’s event of Fast Growth Icons in Berlin. Being recognized by our success and rapid growth strengthens us in our goal to bring 100% global transparency in education by 2018.”
