Deloitte Fast 50 Awards
Emydex picked up their first award at the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 awards, held in the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin last Saturday night.
Now in their 13th year, the Fast 50 awards rank the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in Ireland based on percentage revenue growth over a five-year period.
Coming in at 26th place on foot of cumulative revenue growth of 234%, David McMahon, Emydex CEO said “this represents an average growth rate of 30% year-on-year over the past 5 years. We’re happy with this level of performance and would be happy to sustain this level of growth for the next 5 years. It was great to be sitting at the same table with companies like Openet and Version 1, stalwarts of the Irish Technology Sector over the past 10 years.”
The reception afterwards was held in the Guinness Gravity bar over-looking the Dublin city skyline. One of the highlights on the evening was a key note speech given by Dr Chris Horn, co-founder of Iona Technologies.
