This year marks the 25th year of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500, the annual ranking of the fastest-growing North American companies in the technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech sectors. While there was no specific fintech category, there were several fintech companies who made the list under the software category.
The list ranks companies by three year revenue growth from 2015 to 2018. Unlike the Inc. 5000 this list is open to private as well as public companies. Here is some background about how the list is compiled:
It was created to recognize the effort and dedication of the fastest-growing technology companies. Winners are selected based on percentage fiscal-year revenue growth over a three-year period. The ranking is compiled from applications submitted directly to the Technology Fast 500 website and public company database research conducted by Deloitte LLP.
Congrats to the following fintech companies for making this year’s Technology Fast 500:
