Tech start-up companies have the opportunity to nationally showcase their success by nominating to join the ranks of Australia’s 2016 Technology Fast 50.

The program is supported again this year by sponsors ASX and NetSuite, as well as Clifford Chance and the UK Department for International Trade (formerly UKTI) as new sponsors.

Lee Thompson, SVP and GM of APJ at NetSuite, said, “This prestigious program provides us with the perfect platform to work closely with the fastest-growing and most forward-thinking companies. Our involvement enables us to assist Australian businesses of all sizes to meet their growth objectives through cloud technology, whilst also supporting the future of Australia’s technology start-up ecosystem.”

The companies that make it into the index are playing a significant role in building and advancing Australia’s technology ecosystem, with 2016 a strong year for technology IPOs on the ASX. Throughout the course of the year there were 27 new tech listings, with a combined market capitalisation of over $4.3 billion. This brings the total number of ASX technology listings to more than 167 companies.

“Technology plays an integral role in so many of our day-to-day activities; it’s fantastic to see the companies behind some of Australia’s best innovations nominating to celebrate their achievements and raise their profile across Australia,” said Joshua Tanchel, Deloitte private partner and leader of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 Program.

Max Cunningham, general manager of ASX Listings and Issuer Services, said, “ASX is proud to again be supporting the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program in Australia and encourages all eligible tech companies to nominate. The sector in Australia continues to go from strength to strength and there is little doubt that becoming a member of the Technology Fast 50 means you are among the best in your field.”

Companies wishing to nominate must do so before 30 September 2016.
