Technology Fast 500™ Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA)

Overview of the 2017 winners

The companies in the Technology Fast 500 EMEA not only combine outstanding innovation, entrepreneurial spirit, and growth. With their innovative business models, they also show new paths for companies to follow in the future. We are pleased to recognize 24 German companies among the Top 500 of the best. We especially congratulate Lesara GmbH for second place.

Already in its 17th year, Deloitte awards the Technology Fast 500 EMEA to fast-growing companies from 18 countries, including Belgium, Netherlands, Finland, Italy, UK, France, Germany, und Turkey.

Technology Fast 500 EMEA is the relevant program for European companies. It recognizes the fastest-growing technology companies from the Europe, Middle East and Africa region. Linking the German Technology Fast program and the European Fast 500 program means that the top 50 German companies are automatically included, becoming part of a presentation and contact forum with a European dimension.

The award has long since become a quality seal and recognized competitive factor for entrepreneurial success. Separate application is not required.
