If you were ever in doubt that instagram and influencer marketing could make and change a business on large scale – doubt no more. Inc.com have just announced the top 500 fastets growing companies in Europe.

And the Swedish watch company Daniel Wellington is on top with a reported growth of 4,695% over the last three years.

Daniel Wellington was founded in 2011 by Filip Tysander and is known to have created most of their success through Instagram influencers. How else can something as old school as an analogue wrist watch brand be the fastest growing company in a high tech time? 

Here are a few of the impressive numbers Daniel Wellington have built up on Instagram.
