Connecticut's 40 fastest growing tech companies will be recognized as part of the ConnectiTECH Awards to be held on Wednesday, October 3

The first ConnectiTECH Awards will feature the Marcum Tech Top 40 and will recognize the Most Disruptive Technology and Coolest Tech Workplace in the state.

Growth in Connecticut must and does come from the technology sector, and these Marcum Tech Top 40 companies are exemplary of the achievements within the industry we represent in the state.

The Connecticut Technology Council (CTC) and Marcum LLP today announce the 2018 Marcum Tech Top 40, an annual recognition of the fastest growing technology companies in Connecticut. This year’s group of top-ranked companies will be honored at the new ConnectiTECH Awards event to be held on Wednesday, October 3, at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford. A complete list of the Marcum Tech Top 40 is included below.

The Marcum Tech Top 40 has honored more than 400 Connecticut-based technology and tech-enabled companies since 2008. The awards recognize technology leaders in six industry sectors: Advanced Manufacturing; Energy and Environmental; Life Sciences; New Media, Internet, and Telecom; IT Services; and Software. Tech Top 40 companies may be either privately or publicly held, and they must have at least $3 million in annual revenue and a demonstrated record of revenue growth in each of the preceding four years.

2018’s honorees are a diverse group of businesses from around the state. Eleven companies are publicly traded, and eight have more than $1 billion in annual revenue. Two younger companies, Farmington’s Diameter Health and Stamford’s Link AKC, will be honored at the Tech Top 40 as Accelerators, a classification reserved for companies that successfully scaled to $3 million in revenue in fewer than three years.

“Marcum is extremely proud to partner with the Connecticut Technology Council to present the Marcum Tech Top 40 awards, which honor some of Connecticut’s most innovative companies,” said Michael K. Brooder, CPA, Marcum’s office managing partner in Hartford. “Over the past 11 years, this annual program has given us a fascinating glimpse into the forward thinking that keeps Connecticut on the forefront of technology innovation and business leadership. We heartily congratulate this year’s class of winners and look forward to watching their continuing contributions to Connecticut’s business environment.”

Bruce Carlson, CTC’s President and CEO added, “Growth in Connecticut must and does come from the technology sector, and these Marcum Tech Top 40 companies are exemplary of the achievements within the industry we represent in the state. As part of the ConnectiTECH Awards, the Marcum Tech Top 40 lauds the leaders in tech in Connecticut and inspires more to follow suit.”

This year’s event sponsors include Marcum LLP and Shipman & Goodwin LLC, with support from Webster Bank. Media partner for the ConnectiTECH Awards is WFSB Channel 3.

The October 3 awards program will include the presentation of the Marcum Tech Top 40, as well as two new honors: the Most Disruptive Technology and Coolest Tech Workplace Awards. These awards are designed to celebrate rising tech businesses and innovators and showcase the culture of technology in Connecticut.
