We are celebrating! Last night, during the Tech5 awards gala, we received the first prize as the “fastest growing” startup in Spain. Improving the nightlife experience has been our goal since the very beginning, something that has led us to be the benchmark of the world of nightlife in Spain, both for users and companies in the sector.
To date, more than 10 million people around the world have enjoyed their night spontaneously and have found their favorite events thanks to Xceed. We were born to facilitate nightlife, simplify the process of buying tickets in just 2 clicks and avoiding the long queues at nightclubs. However, the key element of the business is called “Nightgraph“, a CRM software for event organizers that helps them improve their operations, collect relevant data from their audience and take marketing to another level. In short, we are revolutionizing the nightlife industry.
Xceed, whose Board of Directors has recently incorporated the former director of Moët Hennessy Europe Guillaume Penot as Chairman, plans to continue growing exponentially. Mattia Franco, CEO of the company, spoke about this, explaining that “companies growth used to be measured in terms of physical assets, then tech came and suddenly it was all about KPIs and the millions of users you had”. “These are all milestones in the end. If you really want to grow, you shouldn’t focus too much on past achievements, but rather keep in mind that your best asset is always the future”, he added. A future that, without doubt, is attractive and ambitious: “This is just the beginning. We are on a mission to empower people from all over the world to live the best nights of their lives. Anything else will just not be enough.”
The Tech5 awards, in which 44 companies participated, are collaboratively organized by ‘TheNextWeb’ and ‘Adyen’. TheNextWeb is a tech company that focuses on successful startups to make the world “a better place thanks to technology”. Adyen is one of the fastest growing tech companies in the world, something that they want to share giving opportunities to “other companies with the same ambition”. Participation was restricted to companies created after 2013 and all the income generated since its creation was taken into account. Juan José Llorente, Adyen’s director in Spain and vice president of sales for southern Europe, highlighted the “high level of participants” due to the “strong impulse for development” that supposes being the winner. On the other hand, Miguel Vicente, president of Barcelona Tech City and co-founder of Antai Venture Builder, emphasized the “extraordinary growth of all participating entrepreneurs”. Some of the runner-up startups were Tappx, Seedtag, Deliberry, SamyRoad, Housers, Typeform, Scalefast, Signaturit, and Mascoteros.
Next May 24th and 25th, Xceed will travel to Amsterdam to attend the TheNextWeb Conference, where it will compete in the Tech5 final against the winning startups from neighboring markets such as the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Sweden. We will keep you informed!
