Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA selection and qualifications
The Technology Fast 500 list is compiled by the Deloitte EMEA Technology Fast 50 program, nominations submitted directly to the Technology Fast 500, as well as public company database research. To qualify for the Technology Fast 500, entrants must have had base-year operating revenues of at least 50,000 and current-year operating revenues of at least 800,000.

Entrants may be either public or private companies but must be a 'technology company', headquartered in EMEA. A 'technology company' is defined as a company that develops or owns proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues, or manufactures a technology-related product, or devotes a high percentage of effort to the research and development of technology.
