FrenchWeb.fr, a magazine dedicated to all things innovation, has just unveiled the 2019 edition of FrenchWeb 500, the ranking for French Tech growth companies. Created four years ago, the FW500 classification provides an overview of start-ups, SMEs and large corporations in the French Tech ecosystem.
For the second year in a row, Teach on Mars features in the list. This year the company is ranked 206th, up two places from its 2018 position.
It’s worth noting that:
- the ranking includes household name companies (Le Bon Coin Group, Veepee, Cdiscount, BlaBlaCar, ManoMano, Doctolib, Vinci Energies, etc.) and smaller start-ups,
- 29% of the companies in the ranking are software publishers, like us,
- Teach on Mars is still “relatively young”, given that the average age of companies in the ranking is 11 years.
The Data and Analysis team of Decode Media had the huge task of “crunching” the data provided by the many companies applying to be listed in the FW500. The final ranking was produced by rating companies over five criteria to assess their growth potential: 2018 revenues, revenue growth between 2017 and 2018, revenue per employee ratio, 2018 net income to revenue ratio, and a growth potential indicator calculated on the basis of hires and capital raised.
“This fourth edition of the FW500 reveals the many faces of French Tech. It includes innovative start-ups in hypergrowth alongside great little examples of software publishers that have managed to both develop their market share while ensuring their business is highly profitable. This 2019 edition sees the arrival of new, much larger players, in particular industrial companies whose digital transformation processes have reached maturity,” explains Richard Menneveux, CEO and founder of Decode Media (publisher of FrenchWeb.fr).
