Deloitte Technology Fast 50 in Central Europe
Activities of companies on this year's ranking represent to a global audience the flexibility, creativity and inventiveness of our region's business community. This is a particularly important factor as our countries continue their gradual emergence from the widespread slowdown that has affected the world economy over the last five years.
Marek Metrycki, Technology Fast 50 programme leader for Deloitte Central Europe
Welcome to the official site of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Program in Central Europe. This prestigious annual award honors the fastest growing Central European technology companies, based on the percentage of revenue growth over five-year period. Revenue growth is calculated in local currency. Companies must meet a minimum revenue threshold (in Euros) in order to qualify.
To be eligible, companies must meet a number of criteria. Deloitte representatives verify the data from registered companies to determine whether it has been accurately reported. Deloitte does not audit the companies nor does it analyse their financial standing.
This competition is a Deloitte initiative on a regional and global level that aims to draw attention to fast-growing companies and to highlight companies who are just establishing themselves on the market.
