Southampton, Hampshire (PRWEB UK) 30 November 2011
Koozai are proud to announce that they have ranked at number 128 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA 2011, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa). The rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over five years, with 1173 percent being enough to secure 128th place in this year’s list.
The awards featured a number of internationally recognised businesses, which makes the achievements of Koozai all the more significant. Having only been founded in 2006, the company has gone from strength to strength, increasing the size of the team and adding a second London office to enable them to compete on a global, rather than local basis.
The Technology Fast 500 list is compiled from the Deloitte EMEA Technology Fast 50 programmes, nominations submitted directly to the Technology Fast 500, and public company database research. To qualify for the Technology Fast 500, entrants must have had base-year operating revenues of at least €50,000 and current revenues of at least €800,000.
Entrants in the competition had to be a private or public company with their headquarters based in EMEA and they also had to be a ‘technology company’ defined by the terms of the competition.
Ben Norman, Managing Director for Koozai was understandably very proud of the company’s 1173% growth rate over the past five years and its inclusion on the list, “This is a great achievement for all of us here at Koozai and we are really proud of the work we have done over the last five years to gain recognition at the highest level. This achievement comes just a month after we picked up the award for the 23rd fastest growing technology company in the Deloitte Fast 50, so we are extremely pleased to see our hard work paying off.”
“Koozai has gone from strength to strength and we are looking to continue this trend in 2012 and beyond. Being recognised as part of such a prestigious award and competing with some of the biggest and best businesses in the world of technology is massive for us, but this isn’t the end of our growth.”
David Halstead, Deloitte United Kingdom, partner in charge of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA programme stated “Making the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 is commendable in today’s highly competitive technology industry. We congratulate Koozai on being one of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in the region.”
