We are thrilled to announce Wired, one the most influential innovation and technology magazines in the UK, has named Rebtel as the second hottest start-up in Stockholm, Sweden.
Every year Wired UK collates a Start-Up City Guide that covers “fast-growth start-ups who will be the breakthrough businesses of tomorrow” and features companies that investors and commentators believe are “hot” right now. Rebtel was amongst the pick of the crop in Sweden.
Our CEO at Rebtel, Andreas Bernstrom comments: “Last year we were the fifth hottest start-up in Stockholm, to jump three places to number two is a fantastic effort, especially as we were up against some excellent companies that are coming out of Sweden. It is great to see that our hard work and achievements over the last twelve months have been recognised. It is turning out to be a stellar 2012.”
