The Technology Fast 50 is a Deloitte initiative that runs in countries around the world and has seen technology start-ups flourish from humble beginnings into some of the world’s most innovative and respected companies. Now in its fifteenth year internationally, the Fast 50 has reached our South African shores.
The Fast 50 programme ranks a country’s 50 fastest-growing technology companies based on revenue percentage growth over the last five years. Each country’s local programme then feeds into the international competition, the Fast 500 which runs in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific.
