GP Bullhound’s Media Momentum is searching for the hottest and fastest growing companies in the European Digital Media Economy

GP Bullhound is proud to announce the launch of the 7th annual Media Momentum Awards 2011.

The awards recognise Europe’s fastest growing and most innovative digital media companies and is a key calendar date for the industry.

The Top 50 companies in the 2010 list collectively grew their revenue base from €786m to an incredible €1,955m in a 3 year period, and winners included Vente-Privee.com, Bigpoint and Wonga.

Manish Madhvani, Partner at GP Bullhound and Media Momentum judge, said: “The Media Momentum Awards and top 50 league table has over the past seven years become the industry barometer for the digital sector, and has established a reputation for identifying the European stars of the digital media industry. The quality of last year’s entrants and attendees meant the bar was set high for companies to make it into the top 50. It was great to see some ground breaking partnerships and deals announced off the back of last year’s event. The 2011 Awards are set to be the most exciting yet.”

Entrants must have a turnover of at least €1.5million in 2010 and be headquartered in Europe. The top 50 fastest growing companies will be ranked by their annual revenue growth rate between 2008-2010. Winners will be announced at the invitation only awards dinner on 19th May 2011.

Nominated companies will be invited to present to leading digital figures such as Manish Madhvani co-founder and Partner of GP Bullhound, Mark Read, Director of Strategy WPP and CEO of WPP Digital, Xavier Court co-founder of vente-privee.com, Kristian Segerstrale co-founder and CEO of Playfish, Seb Bishop founder of eSpotting and CEO of (RED), Lars Hinrichs founder of Xing, Mark Sebba CEO of NET-A-PORTER, Anil Hansjee Head of M&A Google Europe and Steve Rosenblum founder & CEO of Pixmania.
