The list recognises Dataminr’s 674% revenue growth for a three-year period spanning fiscal years 2016 to 2019.
“It’s an honor for Dataminr to be recognized in the Deloitte Fast 500 List for the third time,” said Ted Bailey, Dataminr Founder and CEO. “In 2020, Dataminr has been more mission critical than ever for the world’s corporate enterprises and public sector organizations as they navigate through these unprecedented times. Thousands of clients in over 70 countries across dozens of corporate industries rely on Dataminr’s real-time information discovery platform for the earliest warnings on high impact-events and critical information.”

“For more than 25 years, we’ve been honoring companies that define the cutting edge and this year’s Technology Fast 500 list is proof positive that technology — from software and digital media platforms, to biotech — truly does permeate so many facets of our lives,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “We congratulate this year’s winners, especially during a time when innovation is needed more than ever to address the monumental challenges posed by the pandemic.”
“Each year the Technology Fast 500 listing validates how important technology innovation is to our daily lives. It was interesting to see this year that while software companies continued to dominate, biotech companies rose to the top of the winners list for the first time, demonstrating that new categories of innovation are accelerating in the pursuit of making life easier, safer and more productive,” said Mohana Dissanayake, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications, within Deloitte’s audit and assurance practice. “We extend sincere congratulations to these well-deserved winners — who all embody a spirit of curiosity, and a never-ending commitment to making technology advancements possible.”
