“Being one of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in EMEA is an impressive accomplishment. We commend M-Files for making the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA with a phenomenal 512 percent growth rate over five years,” said David Halstead, Deloitte United Kingdom and partner in charge of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA program.
Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA Selection and Qualifications
The Technology Fast 500 list is compiled from the Deloitte EMEA Technology Fast 50 programs, 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-year 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 develops or owns proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues; or manufactures a technology-related product; or devotes a high percentage of effort to the research and development of technology. Using other companies' technology in a unique way does not qualify.
