October 13, 2018 – Solin innovator Ivan Mrvoš of smart bench fame and his company ‘Include’ have won yet another award – and this time they’ve been recognized by the prestigious Deloitte. 

Namely, Include has received an award in the “Rising Star” category by the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Program, which is described as a program that recognizes and profiles the fastest growing private or public technology companies in Central Europe.

Deloitte named their criteria for choosing the winners of the Rising Star award. 

“Deloitte ranks companies that show great potential but are too new to meet the minimum of four years in operation criterion for the main Fast 50 category. Companies must have exceeded €30,000 in each of the last three years (2015 – 2017),” reads the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Central Europe page.

“Include is a Croatian hardware company, founded by young innovator Ivan Mrvoš. We earned recognition following a large investment in 2017, quickly becoming one of Europe’s leading producers of smart street furniture. Based in Solin, Croatia, in a 2,000m2 facility with 35 highly educated employees, we are recognised as a serious development IoT platform, growing rapidly in terms of company size, sales volumes and global reach. With a footprint of more than 800 benches in 36 markets around the world, we are involved in many major ‘Smart City’ projects and have made our presence known in 250 cities and municipalities across five continents,” the ‘Rising Star’ winner concluded.

Ivan Mrvoš also thanked Deloitte for the award on Facebook. 

“Include – the fastest growing company of Central Europe in Rising Stars category by Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Program.

We are the first Croatian company to win in this category, with 1950% growth rate in the last three years of business operations.

Back in 2014, we started out with modest initial capital and big vision – to build the largest smart street furniture production company in this part of Europe. Four years later, with 35 highly skilled employees and products placed in 39 global markets, we can proudly say that winning the Deloitte Rising Stars award is one of our company’s greatest accomplishments so far.

Congratulations to all Croatian companies selected in other categories!”

Include accepted the award in Warsaw, Poland, on Friday.
