About Deloitte Technology Fast 50
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards were launched by Deloitte and Touche USA LLP in San Jose, CA in 1995 and quickly became the benchmark of successful growth among U.S. technology companies.
The program rapidly expanded worldwide to cover the UK and Ireland, France, Germany, Central Europe, the Netherlands, Asia-Pacific, Israel, and Australia. Today, there are 19 individual programs running in the U.S. alone.
In the UK and Ireland, the Fast 50 Awards remain unique in celebrating success and innovation among growing technology companies.
The ranking is based on percentage revenue growth over a five-year period, and lists the 50 private and publicly-held technology-based companies that have demonstrated innovative strategies, sound management practices and marketplace vision. It's this combination that has enabled them to become high-growth leaders, despite the massive challenges of this diverse and complex market.
