Thirteen Romanian companies have been included in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 ranking 2015 for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), accounting for about one-fifth of the total number of finalists coming from Central Europe.
According to a press release, the highest placed in the ranking is media company ZebraPay with an average growth rate of 998 percent during the past four years (2010-2014). As compared to the regional Fast 50 ranking launched in October 2015, three new companies from Romania have entered the ranking: Accesa IT Consulting, dcs plus and Gama IT.
“Achieving a position in the EMEA Fast 500 is always an impressive feat but the rates of growth for this year are particularly inspiring. I would like to congratulate all the Romanian companies whose results highlight the strength and determination of the Technology sector in the country,” Alina Mirea (photo), Partner Deloitte Romania and Fast 50 country leader said.
The Technology Fast 500 list is compiled by the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program and nominations are submitted directly to the Technology Fast 500. The Software sector represented 52 percent of the overall rankings on this year’s Fast 500, followed by the Media sector with 18 percent. Rounding out the sector list is Communications (10 percent), Hardware (10 percent), Life Sciences (6 percent) and Clean Technology (4 percent).
