We Don’t Have Time on Financial Times list of fastest-growing companies 2024

For the eighth consecutive year, the Financial Times has ranked the 1,000 fastest-growing companies in Europe. The FT 1000 ranking, compiled with German research company Statista, showcases those European companies with highest percentage growth in revenues between 2019 to 2022.
This year, We Don’t Have Time reached #294 on the FT 1000 list, ranking fourth among media companies in Europe.
Ingmar Rentzhog, founder and CEO of We Don’t Have Time, says the ranking is the result of his team's enduring achievements. He believes it sends an important message to those who still don’t believe that working for the climate can be a good business model.
”It is a great recognition for us to be on this list, as there is still a lot of prejudice about being able to make money on saving the planet. The fact is, the climate economy is growing more than many think. That we rank high on this list is both proof that things are going well for us, and that there is a great need to communicate climate solutions.”


TOP 5 Media Companies in Europe, Growth Rate (%)

  1. The Alliance (UK), +2,935.8%
  2. OnlyFans (UK), +2,143.3%
  3. Requtech (Sweden), +978.3%
  4. We Don’t Have Time (Sweden), +584.6%
  5. Master Group (Italy), +439.2%
We Don’t Have Time was recently also recognized by Deloitte as one of Sweden’s fastest-growing tech companies in 2023’s Sweden Technology Fast 50. Deloitte’s ranking is based on revenue growth over the last four years and includes all areas of tech.
”It is important for us to keep growing, but like many other growth companies in the green economy, we must also achieve profitability. To do this, we need continuous support from investors”, says Ingmar Rentzhog. ”There is no lack of investment money out there, but too much of that money is still flowing in the wrong direction, supporting the fossil fuel industry instead of funding the green solutions.”
This is why We Don’t Have Time has just launched an initiative called Move The Money. The aim is to unite all investors who believe in the power of moving as much money as possible from fossil to green. This includes private investors, angel investors, green funds, banks, hedge funds, venture capital firms, investment companies, and anyone making a living from finance.

The ongoing shift from dirty to clean energy is clearly visible in FT 1000. Raylyst Solar, a Prague-based distributor of solar panels, tops the new ranking, and the boost for renewable energy has made Energy and utilities the fourth best-placed sector, up from sixth place in the previous ranking. According to the Financial Times, ”their rise can be partially attributed to the EU Green Deal, its financing programme to accelerate the transition from fossil fuels, as well as efforts to diversify energy supplies in response to record-high oil and gas prices following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.”
Scrolling through the list of the 1,000 fastest-growing companies of 2024, Ingmar Rentzhog is hopeful about what the companies of the future will look like.
”There aren't many companies from the fossil fuel industry on this list. In fact, I didn't find a single one as I scrolled through. Perhaps I missed one, but they appear to be quite rare. It seems they're not where the future growth is occurring”, he says.

                    Proof that more people are interested in climate change and the environment hence how our numbers keep on increasing as they look to take part in the climate discourse.

                            I am incredibly grateful to be working alongside such an amazing team that has achieved these remarkable results. When my co-founder David Olsson and I started 'We Don't Have Time' seven years ago, we were all too often faced with skepticism. Many questioned whether it was even possible to make money by doing something good for the world. Today, it's a given! The journey from those initial doubts to our current success has been extraordinary, and it's a testament to the hard work, dedication, and belief in our mission shared by everyone on the team. To have reached this point, where our impact is both meaningful and a rapidly growing business, fills me with immense pride. It's a clear sign that doing good and doing well can go hand in hand. Thank you to everyone who has been part of this journey
