All good things hail from Berlin: At the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards in Frankfurt, Peak Ace was recognized as one of Germany’s fastest growing Tech companies for the third year in a row. After 2014 and 2015, we are delighted to be among the prize winners once again and feel validated in our growth strategy thanks to this repeated award.
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards recognize enterprises that meet the challenges of a growing company with a special focus on balancing outward expansion while adapting organizational structures within the company. Among the award winners were IT, communication, and life science companies using new, innovative technologies, to successfully position themselves within their respective fields in a very short period of time.
Bastian Grimm, President Organic Search at Peak Ace:
“This renewed distinction once again confirms our philosophy. I believe that in performance marketing no one can afford to stand still. Innovations and new ideas – especially those relating to data-driven campaigns – will play an important role for us in both paid search and the organic search segment. I can only – again – thank our great team and our customers, who have made this great result possible.”
We would like to thank all the organizers of the Technology Award and above all our team because without them we would not be here now. Thank you for your continuous commitment and hard work!
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Award turns 14
This prize has now been awarded in Germany 14 times after starting in the USA in 1995. To guarantee that newcomer and continuously growing companies are all judged fairly, the award is split into four different categories:
Tech Fast 50
Those who are among the Tech Fast 50 can count themselves among Germany’s fastest growing technology companies on the basis of their sales increase over the past four years.
Sustained Excellence Awards
The Sustained Excellence Awards take into account more than pure sales figures. In this category, additional quality criteria are also examined. For this purpose, the jury members meet for personal talks with entrepreneurs to gain insight into corporate culture as well as finances.
Because nothing is as constant as change, there are new players joining the tech market every year. New businesses with at least two years under their belt that have grown particularly fast are awarded in the Rising Star category.
Special Prize Innovation
Those businesses who do not fit any of the above categories but have developed a special innovative business model or product are awarded a Special Prize for Innovation.
Dr. Andreas Gentner, Partner and Lead of Technology, Media & Telecommunications at Deloitte:
“We are delighted that this year, too, numerous companies from the technology sector have applied with impressive ideas for the Fast 50 Award. This once again illustrates the innovative strength of Germany as a location for business. In our digital age competent IT solutions and business processes are in demand more than ever. All Fast 50 participants have recognized this need and successfully utilized their potential in a competitive environment, nationally as well as internationally.”
