Fast 500 Selection and Qualifications

The Technology Fast 500 list is compiled from Deloitte’s EMEA Fast 50 programs, nominations submitted directly to the Fast 500, and public company database research. To qualify for the Fast 500, entrants must have had 2001 operating revenues of at least €50,000 and 2005 operating revenues of at least €800,000. Entrants must also be public or private companies headquartered in EMEA and must be a “technology company,” defined as a company that owns proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues; or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies' technology in a unique way does not qualify.
