TestGorilla is excited to have been named in Sifted’s Europe’s rising 100, the first-ever annual ranking of 100 venture capital (VC)-backed, business-to-business (B2B) companies to be compiled using a data-based methodology. 

Sifted partnered with Sapphire Ventures, an enterprise VC firm that invests in high-growth, expansion-stage tech, for the report. Although reports like this tend to focus on unicorn companies, this one focuses on emerging companies – those identified as being on the rise. The accolade comes after TestGorilla raised $70m in Series A funding to help businesses eliminate hiring bias.

Finalists are chosen on factors including market potential, investor profile, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech innovation. The final 100 are selected from a list of 250 companies. A judging panel scores them on three criteria: market opportunity, market differentiation, and momentum. 

The report comes at a time when market conditions are changing rapidly. It’s a difficult time for startups, so we’re delighted to be included in a list that recognizes companies that are building sustainably, with a clear vision and a mission to deliver on their values and culture. As the report’s foreword notes, it’s no longer about growing at all costs.

In a market with less overall funding, distractions and much of the noise can disappear. Some of the greatest companies have been started and built during major economic downturns.

Reflecting this recognition, TestGorilla’s ambitions remain strong. Our team continues to grow: we were listed on Otta’s 2022 Rocket List as one of the tech jobs platform’s top 100 growing companies, and we’ve had 295% employee growth in the past 12 months. 

It doesn’t stop there – we’re going to keep growing! If you’re inspired by our mission to put one billion people in dream jobs, check out our careers page. We’d love to meet you.
