[PRESSWIRE] LONDON, April 26, 2017 -- ADYOULIKE, the leading in-feed native ad platform, has been ranked 88th on The Financial Times' FT1000 list, Europe's Fastest Growing Companies 2017, which was released earlier this month.
It was also amongst the top 10 in the 'advertising category' which further demonstrates the company's fast growth in the native advertising sector and across Europe.
Conducted by The Financial Times in conjunction with Statista, the aim of the FT1000 list is to recognise outstanding fast-growing companies that are demonstrating innovation and contributing to driving Europe's economy forward.
From more than 50,000 assessed companies, 1,000 were selected who showed the strongest growth between 2012 and 2015. The list features companies from 24 European countries, with the UK and Germany accounting for 47% of businesses featured.
Julien Verdier, CEO of ADYOULIKE, said: "We are delighted to have made the FT1000 rankings and to be amongst Europe's fast-growing companies. We have also been ranked 378 on the recently announced Inc. 5000 listing and 48 on the Deloitte Technology Fast Track 500, and now being recognised by FT1000, this further demonstrates our continued commitment to the industry and how the company has shown strong growth across the region."
