Last week took place the ceremony of Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards.
This competition rewards public or private companies headquartered in Belgium who develop a technology-related product or service and who have experienced substantial revenue growth over the last five years
Hundreds of companies from all over Belgium were competing.
It’s in this context that, with 1,144 percent growth in revenues, KitoZyme achieves the fastest growth in the Biotech, Nanotech & Medtech sector.
This Award is an additional proof of the work done in research and development, production, regulatory, quality and marketing of KitoZyme products. A real honor for us.
A new application of the concept
Previously a Benelux competition, Fast 50 was, for the first year, organized only for Belgian companies.
In this context of news, the number of award categories was expanded from the overall Fast50 and Rising Star categories, to include awards for the Most Sustainable Growth (selected from among the 2014 Fast50 contestants and Fast50 Alumni), Most Disruptive Innovator (selected from among the Rising Star contestants) and one winner from each of the following categories:
1. IT & Digital Solutions
2. Green Tech & Energy
3. Biotech & Medical Technology
4. Internet, Media & Telecom
The Belgian winners (Fast50 and Rising Star) automatically enter the Deloitte Technology Fast500 EMEA competition. With 25 participating countries, this competition ranks the 500 fastest-growing technology companies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Nikolaas Tahon, Managing Partner Accountancy: “Deloitte has a long-standing history of promoting innovation both within our firm and externally and we are pleased to highlight the achievements of all of the Belgian nominees. Once more, the huge and qualitative participation demonstrates the power of these technology companies in the Belgian economy.”
“The Fast50 competition also provides a unique opportunity to build relationships amongst each other, as well as with venture capitalists and larger international companies, which can lead to international opportunities, and to enhance the company’s employer brand, helping to attract and retain talent.” explains Vincent Fosty, Partner and TMT Industry Leader.
