Technology Fast 500 Selection and Qualifying Criteria

Technology Fast 500 provides a ranking of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. This ranking is compiled from nominations submitted directly to the Technology Fast 500 website, and public company database research conducted by Deloitte. Technology Fast 500 award winners for 2009 are selected based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth during the five year period from 2004 to 2008

In order to be eligible for Technology Fast 500 recognition, companies must own proprietary intellectual property or proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues.
