How to apply for the Fast 50 -- How do you become a Fast 50 company? One key criterion is to have revenues of $50,000 five years ago and $5 million this year. Companies also need to invest a minimum of 5% of revenues in R&D, and they must own intellectual property or proprietary technology. Finally, companies go through an interview process with the Fast 50 team as part of their application. "That's your chance to shine," says Duncan Stewart.
