Tech firms sought for Fast 50 awards

Entries have opened for the 2016 Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 awards. Now in their nineteenth year, the awards recognise and rank the 50 fastest growing technology companies in the UK, based on the last four years of revenue growth.

Supporting the UK’s fastest-growing technology companies are the award sponsors NetSuite, Silicon Valley Bank and Taylor Wessing.

Pauline Biddle, practice senior partner from Deloitte, said: “Since 1998, the UK Technology Fast 50 awards have celebrated innovation, entrepreneurship and intellectual property in the technology sector. Not only do these awards offer a glimpse into the future of the technology market, but they also provide an excellent opportunity for businesses to highlight their achievements.”

Five companies from the Midlands made it in to the last two years’ lists, including Leicestershire-based recruitment software company Vacancy Filler. The company ranked 27th in the UK Fast 50 with an impressive five year growth rate of 546%.

Vacancy Filler’s sales director, Tony Brookes commented, “As one of the foremost cloud-based providers of online recruitment software, Vacancy Filler was delighted to be invited to enter the awards. 

“The Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 is internationally recognised as being one of the most important business awards in the sector and, because it measures sustained revenue growth over four years, being ranked within it is a truly impressive achievement. Being part of Deloitte’s Fast 50 has opened up so many doors for our business - I strongly recommend businesses enter if they can.”

Last year’s UK Fast 50 winners generated a combined total annual revenue of more than £820 million, provided jobs for 7,400 people and recorded an average four-year growth rate of 1,883% in the 201415 financial year.
