3 September 2008: Professional services firm Deloitte, announced today that nominations and applications are now open for Australia’s 2008 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program.
Now in its eighth year, the program provides Australia’s fastest growing technology companies with the opportunity to be recognised as one of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in the country. Previous winners, whose revenues are measured over three years, have included Mobile Data Group Pty Limited in 2007 with phenomenal revenue growth of 10,237% and Unwired in 2006 with revenue growth of 7,000%.
Deloitte is also offering a ‘Rising Star’ Award run in conjunction with the Deloitte Technology Fast 50. For companies who do not qualify for the Fast 50 program on the basis of financial or incorporation criteria, the ‘Rising Star’ award recognises the achievements of high quality, exciting and innovative companies with strong growth potential.
Companies wishing to nominate or apply for selection to the Technology Fast 50 must visit www.tech50.com.au. Nominations close 30 September 2008.
The aim of the Technology Fast 50 program is to recognise and raise the profile of technology companies that have shown sustained growth over the last three years. The winners, who are to be announced in November, become part of an exclusive network of high performing technology companies.
Winners also automatically qualify for the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific 2008 Program and if selected these companies are recognised regionally for their excellence in growth.
Deloitte Growth Solutions partner, Ms Julia Bickerstaff says “the program recognises fresh, innovative and inspiring local companies who have managed to sustain impressive growth during increasingly testing times.
“Fast growing companies have constant challenges such as managing growth, retaining good people, avoiding extra compliance burdens and attracting finance to grow. This program will give winners extensive media profile, networking opportunities with other fast growing technology companies and access to industry experts who are shaping the new economy.”
