NANTERRE, France and SAN FRANCISCO, California (July 9th, 2015) – E-commerce provider Nexway announced today that it was awarded a prestigious prize by business magazine Decideurs and the French Ministry of the Economy honoring France’s most deserving high growth companies (“Grand Prix des Entreprises de Croissance”).

Nexway won first prize in the “Media and Entertainment Category”.
