Andrew Anastasiou has made his way to the US headlines after being featured on the front page of one of North America’s biggest men’s business and lifestyle magazines, Swagger. The London born entrepreneur was contacted by the company after he won his 3rd award of the year, the UK’s Future 100 Award.
The award itself has been an obtainable prize for entrepreneurs and businesses since 2010, and is offered to the top 100 entrepreneurs between the ages of 25 and 35 who have exceptional talent in the business world and have shown that their talents are realised through starting and growing their businesses or ideas. Andrew Anastasiou was amongst 40,000 contestants and was named number 1 out of the final 100. This year is the final year that the distinguished prize can be won as from this year, the awards will stop.
Andrew Anastasiou also won the European Start-up Entrepreneur award for his talents in setting up new businesses that are quickly adopted by their target customer base, as well as winning the European Scale-up Entrepreneur Award for his skills in scaling his companies to levels that other start-up projects fail to achieve even in the long term. His online banking services have shown some of the fastest growth patterns in the industry, and his digital payments services boast some 10,000 customers, some of which are extremely large and well know companies in the financial industry.
The feature obtained by the entrepreneur in Swagger is also an achievement in itself, as the magazine has over 10 million monthly viewers and a considerable online presence including millions of direct website viewers. The magazine has also featured stars such as Ryan Reynolds and Jessica Parker Kennedy.
Andrew Anastasiou is expected soon to be featured by Money Central, another large publication with bases in North America, Europe, and Asia. The solely online publication is specifically for entrepreneurs and has over 12 million yearly visitors to their website.
