Fast 50 competition

Opportunities, collaborations & partnerships

The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 competition is aimed at fast-growing technology companies that have their headquarters in Belgium. Given their significant role as drivers of future growth, these companies deserve special recognition and support – and that is exactly what the competition is designed to provide.

Who can register?

Public and/or private companies that develop a technology-related product or service in Belgium and that have been in business for at least four years, can register for their chance to be nominated as one of the country’s 50 fastest-growing technology companies.

To find out if your company is eligible to enter this year’s competition, take a look at the process and criteria.

If your company has been active in the technology sector for less than four years, you may be eligible to participate in the special Rising Star category of the competition.

Why participate?

Participating in Deloitte’s 2017 Technology Fast 50 competition can help companies to develop their business by increasing their visibility and giving them access to the Fast 50’s unique network of highly successful executives

As an internationally renowned competition with strong media coverage and opportunities, Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 allows companies – and the winners in particular - to strengthen their credibility toward customers, prospects and suppliers, as well as investors, business partners, employees and peers.

The Fast 50 is a brand booster that stands for innovation, growth, ambition, drive and vision.

In addition to the Fast 50, the competition winners will automatically enter Deloitte’s 2017 Technology Fast 500 EMEA. The EMEA Fast 500 is an overview of the 500 fastest growing companies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

“If you want to succeed, you surround yourself with successful people. Being part of a community of winners breeds confidence. The number of Fast 50 companies is growing exponentially and the larger it gets, the more it has to offer.”
