On Wednesday, global accounting and consulting firm Deloitte unveiled its latest ranking of the 2020 Technology Fast 500 and Austin-based companies were well represented among some of North America’s fastest-growing tech startups.
The 26th annual list includes companies chosen based on their fiscal year revenue growth between the years 2016 and 2019. The companies are ranked based on their percentage growth rate. Overall, the companies included in the ranking reached revenue growth ranging from 175 percent to 106,508 percent over three years. The median growth rate was 450 percent.
In addition to tech companies, companies in the media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy technology sectors were also included in the ranking. Leading the way nationally was Pasadena-based pharmaceutical company Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals.
All told, eight companies made the list from Austin. This marks a sharp increase from last year’s ranking, when only four Austin companies made the cut. At the top of the list for the Texas capital city was OJO Labs, which ranked 29th overall with its 7,785 percent revenue growth.
