“Fast 50 companies are the cutting-edge innovators leading the technology industry in Canada,” said Anders McKenzie, Technology, Media and Telecommunications Managing Partner for Deloitte in Canada. “Their bold vision, unrivaled growth and true commitment to innovation allow them to not only improve today’s world, but also shape tomorrow’s.”
To qualify for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking, companies must have been in business for at least four years, have revenues of at least $5 million, be headquartered in Canada, own proprietary technology, conduct research and development activities in Canada and invest a minimum of five percent of gross revenues in R&D.
Aeryon was also among five Ontario-based companies honoured with the prestigious Technology Fast 50 Leadership award for their innovation and leadership in their respective industries.

The awards are presented to Deloitte Technology Fast 50 qualified companies that demonstrate technological leadership on four key criteria: competitive advantage, growth and market attractiveness; management effectiveness and organization; and financial performance.
