Slovak online bookstore grows fast

THE SLOVAK online bookstore Martinus.sk has been ranked the 16th fastest growing company in central Europe in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA, which lists the 500 fastest growing technological companies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

THE SLOVAK online bookstore Martinus.sk has been ranked the 16th fastest growing company in central Europe in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA, which lists the 500 fastest growing technological companies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Martinus.sk ranked 161st on the list, with another Slovak company, Sygic, which produces GPS navigation systems, finishing slightly ahead in 156th place.

The Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA primarily considers the increase in a firm's revenue in the past five years and Martinus.sk recorded 967-percent revenue growth over that five-year period.

“We perceive the Deloitte ranking as a positive assessment of Slovakia on the international level as well as proof that Martinus.sk is on the right track,” said Michal Meško, the co-founder of Martinus.sk, adding that it shows that its customers appreciate the bookstore’s focus on their special needs.

Martinus.sk has been operating since 2001 and its website is visited over 600,000 times each month. The company also has four bricks-and-mortar bookshops in Bratislava, Žilina, Nitra and Martin.
