Twelve Northern Ireland companies have made it on to this year’s Deloitte Technology Fast 50 list. Now in its twentieth year, the Fast 50 awards showcase the fastest growing tech firms across the island based on revenue growth.

In the past two decades some of Northern Ireland’s best-known technology firms have featured on the Fast 50 listing, including Novosco, Neueda and Andor Technology.

The full list of Northern Ireland companies who have made it into the 2019 Fast 50 is: AquaQ Analytics; Catagen; Decision Time; IRP Commerce; First Derivatives; Flint Studios; Learning Pool; Lucid Interactive; Made to Engage; Repstor; Sixteen South and Titan IC Systems.

The companies will find out where they are placed on the list and who will take top spot at a gala dinner on 25th October in Dublin. The highest ranked Northern Ireland firm last year was ECM software specialist, Repstor, who placed 10th overall.

Peter Allen, Partner at Deloitte, said: “For 20 years, the Technology Fast 50 awards have highlighted the growth of Ireland’s leading indigenous technology companies. The awards provide a chance for businesses to celebrate their success and outline their future ambitions.

“The technology sector is already an important contributor to the Northern Ireland economy and Deloitte believes it has a big role to play in driving the economy forward in the years ahead, so it is encouraging to see the impact Irish indigenous tech companies are having in global markets.”
The Fast 50 is open to companies from across the technology spectrum, including software, hardware, communications, media, clean-tech and life sciences. Deloitte ranks the companies based on their revenue growth over the previous four years.

Caroline Greer, Finance Director at IRP Commerce, which celebrates a seventh year in the Fast 50, added: “We’re delighted to be back again in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50. This recognition is a testament to the excellence of our technology, which we believe is the best in its field, and the strength of our win-win partnership model for generating profits in ecommerce. It also showcases the skill and proficiency of our team in developing and delivering top-class software.”
