Connective included in 2019 Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ ranking for EMEA

Deloitte - Technology Fast 500 - Connective

On the 30th of July Deloitte announced its 2019 Technology Fast 500 EMEA rankings and recognized Connective in this years´ list. This objective industry ranking focuses on the technology ecosystem and recognizes technology companies that have achieved the fastest rates of revenue growth in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) from 2015 to 2018. Connective grew with 227% during this period (the full list can be found here)

Our CEO, Nicolas Metivier, attributes Connective´s strong growth to the drastically evolving need for digital signatures, identification services and digital contract management in combination with our continuous investment in innovation and compliance.

More and more processes of all kinds – even the ones that have always implied the physical act of creating, exchanging and signing paperwork, like closing a contract – are being digitized. But ever since its existence, the digital signatures market is dealing with a big challenge being that government´s rules and regulations, and the judiciary acceptance of digital signatures as proof strongly vary geographically. For this reason, Connective continuously invests in innovation and compliance to offer the best and above all most secure ‘glocal’ signing and identity solutions. So over the years, Connective eSignatures and Identity Hub have evolved to global solutions that includes signing and identification methods that range from one-size-fits-all solutions to local electronic identity cards and digital identity schemes. Today, Connective helps any company to service all their customers around the world making use of both generic signature methods as well as locally available means of identification, while being compliant with EU- (eIDAS regulation), Swiss (ZertES), US and many other legislations.

Nicolas Metivier, CEO of Connective, says: “It is an honour and a great summary of our work to be in the 2019 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA Ranking. For the last couple of years Connective invested significantly to be ahead of the market in delivering innovative identification and eSignatures solutions. Thanks to the combination with our Smart Documents solution, Connective has evolved to a unique global technology player that offers our customers and partners all necessary tools to digitize their critical business processes. With this recognition by Deloitte we can confirm our strong position in the world of technology and that our ‘glocal’ approach pays-off.”


“Congratulations to this year’s Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA winners on their achievements,” said Sandy Shirai, Global and US Technology, Media & Telecommunications Leader. “As technology continues to transform every aspect of how we live and work, innovative, high-growth companies will continue to be at the forefront of bringing new ideas to the marketplace. I look forward to seeing this year’s winners make a positive impact on our world for years to come.”

This is definitely not the first distinction we received for being recognized as one of the most pioneering companies that drive digital transformation. Earlier this year we were included in Capgemini´s ‘Financial NewTech Challenge 2020’. Last year we were also proclaimed as of the first ScaleUps in the Capgemini ScaleUp Qualification program. Moreover, we were assessed as an Advanced Level ScaleUp, which is the highest rating in the program. Besides that, Connective was nominated in 2019 by Deloitte for the second year in a row as one of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Belgium.

We would also like to congratulate Revolut, which is the number 1 in the list with an incredible 39754 percent growth from 2015–2018.

Thanks to everyone who believes in us as a company and in our solutions. This recognition makes us more positive than ever about the future growth of our company.
