This is the 16th time that Deloitte has awarded the “Technology Fast 50 Award” to the 50 fastest growing technology companies based in Germany. Growth is measured by the average percentage of increase in sales over the last four financial years (2014 to 2017). In addition, the sales revenue is required to be at least 50 thousand Euros in 2014, and at least 1 million Euros in 2017.
A couple of years ago, companies like Google and Tesla were also awarded by Deloitte. They select high-growth companies backed by pioneering technologies and ambitious founders.
“Numerous fast-growing companies from Germany have positioned themselves in future-oriented technology fields in recent years. Responsible for this are entrepreneurs who, with their willingness to take risks and their entrepreneurial spirit, have consistently pursued their visions”, explains Dr. med. Andreas Gentner, Partner and Head of Technology, Media, and Telecommunications EMEA at Deloitte. “With the Fast 50 Award, we want to honour outstanding entrepreneurial achievements of tech companies in Germany.”

The age of simple-to-use telephone directories like Yellow Pages is finally over. Micro businesses need to be visible online to be noticed.
