In the 2017 edition of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 awards, Donuts was the top ranking company in North America. The Technology Fast 500 awards recognizes “the fastest growing public and private technology companies in North America.” The award has existed for more than 20 years. Last year’s winner was Loot Crate.
According to a press release distributed by Deloitte this morning, “Donuts Inc. claimed the top spot with a growth rate of 59,093 percent from 2013 to 2016.” The actual revenue number was not shared, so that remains unknown. Deloitte looks at % of fiscal revenue growth from 2013-2016 to determine the winner. I am not sure if there is a minimum revenue figure in order to be considered for the list. The four other top finishers for 2017 were Classpass, Toast, Aratana Therapeutics, Inc., and Theravance Biopharma US, Inc.
I took a quick look at the top 500 companies in the 2017 Technology 500 list (a .pdf file), and I do not see other domain industry companies listed (correct me if I missed one). There are a few tertiarily connected companies in the group, but I do not see any domain name focused companies besides Donuts.
It’s neat to see Donuts leading this group of prestigious companies. Congratulations to Donuts on the award.
Update: At first glance, I didn’t notice, but two other companies with domain industry ties is also listed. El Toro came in at #13 on the list. Here’s a link to the company’s press release announcing the honor. Payoneer was also awarded, and here is the company’s press release.
