    SocialView appointed: Gazelle company 2019!

Published October 17, 2019

This is BIG! We are happy to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious appointment as Gazelle Company 2019 by the Swedish financial daily newspaper Dagens Industri! This means that SocialView is one of Sweden’s fastest growing companies and has more than doubled our revenue over the past four years. WHAT A MILESTONE! 🚀

It has been an intense but exciting year for SocialView. Despite a brave relocation from Kalmar to Stockholm, we had a revenue of 21.7 million SEK last year and won the prestigious price “Young Entrepreneur of the Year” award in Stockholm City 2019 by Företagarna this spring. We have also landed a number of international projects for, among others, BioGaia, Kjell & Company and Epicenter, which we of course are extremely happy about. In other words: after a Stockholm expansion like no other, it happened – we are a Gazelle Company!

“The DI Gazelle award is without doubt something to be extra proud of considering that fewer than 1% of all Sweden’s companies are appointed as gazelles each year. Even though we put a lot of time on our Stockholm expansion and internal development, we meet all the criteria for a Gasell company, which is a great acknowledgment that we are going in the right direction!”Andreas Bengtsson & Marcus Smith, founders of SocialView  

Above all, we want to turn the spotlight on our fantastic employees, customers, partners and fans who have contributed to SocialView being appointed as a Gazelle company – you made this possible! THANK YOU for all your trust and for giving us the opportunity to do what we love every day. We promise to keep working hard for our vision of leading the change of marketing while we’re creating a workplace for the next generation! ❤️
