FD Gazellen

The FD Gazellen Awards and the FD Gazellen International Award are awards presented by Het Financieele Dagblad. These awards are given annually to the fastest growing Dutch companies within, and outside of the Netherlands.

Check out below which nominations Vibe Group managed to get.

What is an FD Gazelle?

The renowned Dutch newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad annually bestows the prestigious FD Gazelle awards upon the most rapidly expanding enterprises. In order to qualify for this esteemed recognition, companies must maintain a consistent revenue growth of no less than 20% over the preceding three years. Additionally, substantial emphasis is placed on the augmentation of their workforce and profitability.

The augmentation of the workforce, measured in full-time equivalents (FTEs), serves as a key metric indicating a company’s contribution to employment growth. Meanwhile, profitability stands as a crucial measure of a company’s ability to create added value within the market.

2024 - FD Gazellen Internationaal again

For the second time in a row, Vibe Group has been nominated for the 2024 FD Gazellen International. Vibe Group is one of the 78 organisations that met the criteria. Created in 2023, the FD Gazellen International awards are an extension of the FD Gazellen, and is given to the company that grows beyond its borders in the most extraordinary way.

We are immensely grateful for this award. This would not have been possible without the dedication of our employees, partners and IT professionals. To all our fellow Gazelles International: congratulations on your success and achievements! Together, we form a community of dynamic and growing companies driven by innovation, passion and perseverance. It is inspiring to see how we collectively contribute to the economic growth and development of our country.
