Kempower was selected as ‘International Star’ in the annual European Small and Mid-Cap Awards 2023 announced at the European Commission’s annual SME Assembly in Bilbao, Spain, on Tuesday 14 November 2023.  

The Awards, which has been organized for eleven consecutive years, is a joint initiative of European Issuers, the Federation of European Securities Exchanges (FESE), and the European Commission, and aims to promote best practices and encourage more small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to access capital markets via IPOs. 

Each year, the most dynamic small and mid-cap companies are nominated for four separate categories which include Rising Star, International Star, Star of Innovation, and Star of 2023. An independent jury selects a shortlist of three companies per category selected from the SMEs. Since 2020, the Awards is organized as part of the European Commission’s SME Assembly. This year’s winners have gone public in the period 2021-22. 

“This award is a great demonstration of the hard work of our Kempowerians and the good cooperation with customers. We have successfully built international growth in the DC charging market. Our goal is to accelerate the EV evolution and make this planet a cleaner and more quiet place for us all,” said Tomi Ristimäki, Kempower CEO. 

“We want to congratulate Tomi Ristimäki, CEO of Kempower and his entire team on winning the Award,” said Henrik Husman, President of Nasdaq Helsinki. “Since the listing in 2021, Kempower has attracted wide interest by investors and customers alike with its groundbreaking reliable and user-friendly DC fast charging solutions for electric vehicles. We are pleased that Kempower recently renewed its Nasdaq Green Equity Designation as an endorsement of its progress toward their sustainability goals.”
