The New England Technology Fast 50 is an annual event co-sponsored by Hale and Dorr and Deloitte & Touche LLP, this year in association with Mass High Tech and Mazonson. Fast 50 recognizes New England's 50 fastest growing technology companies (by percent revenue growth from 1997 through 2002). A category called the Rising Stars recognizes companies that have been in business at least three years, but less than five.
The Fast 50 and Rising Stars will be honored at a gala awards ceremony to be held at Hale and Dorr on September 18, 2003. The companies' CEOs and employees are invited to the event to celebrate and witness the countdown that will reveal their ranking on this year's list. All companies that participate in the New England program are also entered into Deloitte & Touche's national recognition program, the Technology Fast 500.
