Forbes, the prestigious business publication, announced last week that Annika Monari and Alan Vey, co-founders of the global foods marketplace Artos, have been ranked as part of their ‘30 Under 30, Europe 2021’ list. The list spotlights ‘young innovators on the verge of making it big’, and features pioneers across tech, finance, policy, entertainment and various industries. The ranking is a great acknowledgement of the company’s origins as one of the leading innovators in blockchain technology and offers a summary of the strides Artos has made since its inception in 2017.
The Artos co-founders were listed in the Technology category, and of their journey, Forbes writes, “With only £70,000 of VC funding and no staff, [Artos] put together an ICO in 2017, raising over £20 million in the process.” The piece also references the early success Artos achieved helping ticketing organisations more efficiently manage inventory as it moves through the supply chain, a testament to the company’s innovation with blockchain solutions.
Annika Monari, co-founder of Artos Systems, says, “This listing is an honour, and a great boost to us when thinking about the company’s achievements and where we started. We’re excited to continue our vision of supporting industries with blockchain technology, and, in particular, cultivating a more ethical and sustainable food supply chain. We're looking forward to seeing Artos grow and we're excited about what the future holds. Acknowledgements like this are always appreciated. Big thank you to Forbes!”
