Bucharest, 4 December 2014 – Seven Romanian companies have entered Deloitte’s 2014 Technology Fast 500 for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) rankings, the program charting the fastest growing public and private technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and clean technology companies from over 20 countries, based on revenue growth over a five-year period. The seven Romanian companies have registered an average growth of 575%.
“We are impressed to see so many Romanian companies in this year’s report. Achieving a ranking on this year’s list proves their commitment and drive to grow innovative companies—a difficult feat in the competitive and fast-moving technology environment. This is also a proof that they play global and measure their forces with impressive organizations from countries that have definitely access to much better resources. We would like to congratulate all of them for being part of such a big league”, said Alina Mirea, Deloitte Partner and local project leader. This year Romania has five more companies as compared to 2013.
While six of the Romanian companies have initially applied for the regional CE Technology Fast 50 program announced in October this year, one has applied directly for the EMEA program: Bittnet System of Bucharest, ranking 333rd, with an average growth of 489%.
The highest ranked in the EMEA ranking is the Sibiu-based ITNT SRL (115th place) with an average growth of 1,433%, who has also ranked fourth in the Fast 50 competition.
