NEW YORK, NEW YORK, [NOVEMBER 17, 2021] — Dataminr, the leading real-time information discovery platform, today announced it ranked 465 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 27th year.
"Dataminr's real-time event and information discovery platform has revolutionized the way corporations and governments learn about events and risks that impact their organizations," said Dataminr Founder and CEO, Ted Bailey. “Dataminr is thrilled to be recognized for the fourth year for our continued revenue growth as we scale to meet the growing global demand for our products.”
Following a $475M growth financing in early 2021, which valued the company at $4.1B, Dataminr has continued to rapidly expand across the corporate enterprise and accelerate its international private and public sector customer footprint throughout Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

“Each year the Technology Fast 500 shines a light on leading innovators in technology and this year is no exception,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chair, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “In the face of innumerable challenges resulting from the pandemic, the best and brightest were able to pivot, reinvent and transform and grow. We celebrate the winning organizations and especially the talented employees driving their success.”
“The pandemic has underscored the urgent need for tech solutions in a variety of areas across health care, fintech, energy tech, entertainment, to name a few, so reliance on innovators like the winners of the Technology Fast 500 is more important than ever,” said Christie Simons, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications within Deloitte’s audit & assurance practice. “These companies are not only at the cutting edge, transforming the way we do business, but most importantly, recognize the strategic importance of ongoing innovation, especially in the ever-changing world of technology.”
