“The world that I came from, women star in television shows, women lead movies, women
star on Broadway. But when my business was
beginning and it was just my female co-founder and I, people asked, ‘Well, who’s going to run

perception I really wanted to change.”

Inc. 5000 Europe Where are the Continent’s fastest-growing companies? Cast your eyes north and east.
If you’re looking in Europe’s largest countries for the biggest concentrations of driven entre- preneurs, you’re doing it wrong. Per capita, the 10 countries with the most Inc. 5000 Europe companies—those on this year’s list added more than 311,000 jobs to local economies— were all tiny, and Eastern European or Scandi- navian. The same was true last year, when
this year’s No. 2, Estonia, topped the list; this year’s and last year’s top five cities all came from those regions as well. All that said: This year, Paris claimed two top 10 businesses–the energy company Forsee Power and the adtech firm Adikteev. Insert joke about which language gave us the word entrepreneur. ; JON FINE
Total revenue of the companies on this
year’s Inc. 5000 Europe—a 55 percent jump
from last year’s comparable figure.
