LONDON--()--The European Business Awards sponsored by RSM, Europe’s largest cross-section business competition, announced Upstream as a finalist and Ruban d’Honneur recipient, for the ELITE Award for Growth Strategy of the Year. Upstream is one of only 10 companies from across Europe selected for the accolade in this category.

This important distinction reflects Upstream’s ability to demonstrate a solid, international growth strategy, achieving outstanding results in terms of key metrics, such as consumer reach, geographical footprint, revenues generated, paying subscribers, mobile operator clients, new product offerings and market share.

The European Business Awards engaged with over 33,000 businesses from 34 countries, with Upstream selected as one of only 110 finalists to compete to win one of the competition’s 11 prestigious award categories.
