Deloitte Technology Fast 50 China 2011
Seeking the fastest growing company in China
The beginning of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 program was the Technology Fast 50 that started in 1995 in San Jose. This program quickly expanded to numerous cities and countries. The EMEA Technology Fast 500 program was launched in 2001 and focused on promoting fast-growing technology companies across Europe. The program is now considered as benchmark for fast-growing technology companies across the globe.
In the Asia Pacific region, Australia, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand have identified their own Technology Fast 50 companies using similar criteria. Mainland China and Hong Kong have been participating in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific program for the past six years, and the number of winners from China has been increasing every year. In 2005, Deloitte China launched its own Deloitte Technology Fast 50 China program. Following its success in the previous years, Deloitte China will continue to conduct the program in 2011.
Participants in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 China program will automatically qualify for participation in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific 2011 program, which annually recognizes the 500 fastest growing technology companies in Asia Pacific.
Winners will receive significant exposure and recognition from the media and industry and become part of an exclusive network of high performing technology companies. The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 China 2011 winners will be announced in 27 October 2011. All winners will be invited to attend the China TF50 Awards Ceremony in Shenzhen as well as the Asia Pacific 500 Awards Ceremony in Hong Kong in December 2011 to network with other top-tier executives from the fastest-growing technology companies around Asia Pacific.
