Among 265 applicants Piwik PRO outperformed other competitors. Company representation consisted of the CEO and cofounder of the company – Maciej Zawadziński and CFO – Piotr Korzeniowski, who received the statuette during the official gala in Warsaw:
“These have been four years of hard work for all our team but I would not expect it to be noticed by anyone but our clients. I am very happy that our efforts towards protecting privacy stand out and are appreciated internationally” – said Zawadziński.
“Being the 20th fastest growing technology company in Central Europe means that we are doing great, but it also means that next year we can do even better. Both as a business partner for our clients and as a global web and app analytics player raising awareness and providing solutions that enable more ethical data usage” – added Korzeniowski.
