Deloitte placed BOLD International in the Technology Fast 500 rankings of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) for the year 2015. This list was created by Deloitte Global’s Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) and includes companies from 28 countries of those specific regions that are leaders in hardware, software, telecommunications, media, life sciences and clean technology. This annual ranking recognizes 500 private and public technology companies for their effort and dedication, which is measured and sorted by the biggest percentage growth rate in revenues during the last four years preceding this list’s publishing.
BOLD was one of the six Portuguese companies ranked with a place on the list (383rd), third place on the national rankings. This place is due to the 228 percent growth registered in the most representative sector in the rankings: software (52%).
This year, company growth rate averages 1,012 percent, which represents a drop in the average rate in comparison with the 1,700 percent average from last year. Measuring the growth rate in a shorter period of 4 years instead of 5 years, as before, led to this average drop.
The presence of BOLD in the rankings of this year’s Fast 500 grants bigger awareness and recognition with researchers, shareholders and tech industry analysts, strengthening BOLD’s market positioning.
Congratulations are in order!
