Furthermore, 2 Lithuanian companies made the list of Rising Stars category while other 2 Lithuanian companies made the list of Big 5 category.
The winner of last year’s Rising Star award was Lithuanian smart device company Deeper UAB with a three-year growth rate of 3,631%. 10th place in the Rising Stars ranking was taken by Lithuanian publisher and developer of casual and free-to-play mobile games for kids and toddlers INVENIS UAB (669.57%).
Third place in the Big Five category was taken by Pigu UAB (171%), the Lithuanian online retailer that was runner-up in the Big Five in 2015. Lithuanian biomass incineration technology leader Enerstena UAB won 4th place in the same category (126.47).
Fast 50 programme categories
The Fast 50 is the main category of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 in Central Europe. It recognizes and profiles the 50 fastest-growing companies in the region based on the revenue growth over four years (2013-2016).
The Big 5 is a special category which recognizes those technology companies which are too big to compete in growth rates with smaller companies participating in the main Fast 50 ranking but are still growing at a rapid pace for their size.
The Rising Stars is a special category which recognizes high-growth companies who are too young to be listed in the Fast 50 main ranking but are already growing rapidly.
Most Disruptive Innovation
The newest addition to the Programme is a special award for the ‘Most Disruptive Innovation’ which recognizes a company that develops a unique and innovative product or provides services that have a revolutionary impact on the market. Only one winner will be selected based on an assessment by an independent jury.
