“To be named as one of Europe’s fastest growing companies is an acknowledgement for the digital magazine sector and it shows how the market is starting to mature. There’s been plenty of talk about digital film-and music services these past years, so I’m pleased to see the top listings going to digital services that push for written, curated content and the development of this as the industry moves forward.”
