Frequently Asked Questions

Who makes the cut?  

Companies that make the Technology Fast 50™ list are diverse—large, small, public, private—and come from a variety of industry sub-sectors. They’re leaders in hardware, software, telecommunications, or digital media, as well as new and emerging areas. Technology Fast 50™ companies demonstrate revenue growth, technological innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit.

Why are rankings based on revenue growth vs. profits?

Since companies have different ways of recognizing profits, Deloitte determined that a ranking based on pure revenues makes the most sense. Ranking fast-growth technology companies by revenue growth sets a level playing field for all nominated companies and makes the Technology Fast 50™ program as fair and accurate as possible.

Will my company’s revenue numbers be made public?

The Technology Fast 50™ and North America Technology Fast 500™ programs only publish the revenue growth percentage rates.

How long does it take to submit an application?

With all the right information at hand, the application process should take no longer than 20 minutes.

How do companies benefit from this ranking?

Being ranked in the Technology Fast 50™ communicates your company’s great business results and strong management skills. It also provides a strong endorsement from Canada’s largest professional services firm and the program’s high-profile sponsors.
