Keyrock wins the 2019 Rising Star award

MAGICS Instruments is the Most Disruptive Innovator

While not all fast-growing technology companies have been in business for at least four years, many have the potential to become market leaders. That’s why these early achievers – who may one day be listed in the Technology Fast 50 ranking – can enter the Rising Star category! The Rising Star nominees have the potential to become market leaders. These promising technology companies have been identified by the jury as high-potential and future growers.

Rising Star 2019


The Rising Star 2019 was selected from the ten most promising companies that have been in business for less than four years. An independent jury, chaired by Duco Sickinghe, CEO of Fortino, assessed the investor pitch of each company based on the scalability of its business concept, overall market potential, management quality and the disruptive power of its innovation. The Rising Star winner was Keyrock, a company that develops a software that allows to easily provide liquidity to all financial markets, using self-adapting liquidity algorithms and an intuitive user interface. 


This is a great recognition of all the work we’ve been doing over the past two years, with a team of almost 20 people, developing our vision of the capital market. As any entrepreneur, we’re very optimistic about what lies ahead of us, and about the technological developments and disruptions that are happening in our market segment. Looking forward to all future opportunities!

Kevin de Patoul, CEO of Keyrock
