Deloitte Announces 2013 Fast 500 Winners

20 Nov Deloitte Announces 2013 Fast 500 Winners

Last week, Deloitte published its annual list of Technology’s Fast 500, and Elizabeth Shea and I were fortunate enough to be at the D.C. area dinner when the rankings were announced.

The North American Fast 500 celebrates companies of all sizes in the U.S. and Canada that have exhibited remarkable growth. Winners span a variety of sectors, including hardware, software, telecom, semiconductors, life sciences and clean tech.

To qualify for the Technology Fast 500, companies must be headquartered in North America and have a 2008 operating revenue of at least $50,000 and a 2012 operating revenue of at least $5 million.

Deloitte shared these interesting stats about this year’s North American winners:

  • Five of the top ten companies are private
  • 58 percent of the companies on the list have received venture capital funding
  • Software companies represent the majority of this year’s list with 241 companies
  • 23 companies have growth of more than 10,000 percent, with the top company on the list exhibiting 208,897 percent growth.
