The Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Awards™ are run and moderated by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited. They recognize the 500 fastest-growing technology companies in regions around the world. Winners cover all areas of technology — from Internet to life sciences, from computers to semiconductors — and include both public and private companies.

The awards were created in 1997 during the dotcom boom to illustrate the success of growing U.S. technology companies. Today, the Fast 500 has expanded beyond the United States and covers North America; Asia Pacific; and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

The Fast 500 examines companies on their relative growth in revenue over a five-year period. A company that grew by $1million from a revenue of $2million will rank below a company that grew by $500,000 from a revenue of $100,000. The Fast 500 seeks to reward companies that have demonstrated cutting edge business strategies, vision and solid management.

The Fast 500 has three main international divisions:

  • Fast 500 EMEA
  • Fast 500 North America
  • Fast 500 Asia Pacific
