Deloitte Fast 50 open for entries

The 2016 Deloitte Fast 50, the index that ranks New Zealand’s fastest growing companies, is open for entries from today until Friday, 29 July.

Deloitte private partner Bill Hale says the Fast 50, now in its 16th year, is more than just another business awards programme.

“The Fast 50 is a community of Kiwi business on a mission to achieve great things for their companies,” he says.  

Hale encourages all fast growing businesses to enter by filling out the simple online entry form. 

“You’ve got to be in it to win it. The index only ranks businesses that choose to participate,” he says.  

“The straight forward entry process only takes 10 to 15 minutes but the rewards from making the index are immeasurable.  Fast 50 companies receive considerable local and national media coverage, profile within the business community, including potential investors, and a huge boost to company morale.”

The Deloitte Fast 50 index ranks the top 50 businesses in New Zealand according to their revenue growth over the past three years. 

The Fast 50 has featured some of the country’s most spectacular successes, including 42 Below, Trade Me and Xero.

The 2016 Deloitte Fast 50 will be revealed at the Deloitte Festival of Fast Growth – where all ranked companies attend a one day inspirational event at Auckland’s Villa Maria winery concluding with a gala awards ceremony.

“The Festival has become an annual highlight for like-minded businesses to connect with other successful businesses and learn from each other’s experiences: it’s really brilliant to be part of,” concludes Mr Hale.
