"TF50 winners will automatically be enrolled into the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific 2013 Program (TF500), which awards top 500 fast growing companies in Asia Pacific. This makes it a more meaningful experience for participant companies, which can leverage our well-recognized platform to share their successful business stories and get connected with potential investors," said Mr Chou.
