Large and small local companies, public and private, can now apply for the competition, simultaneously with companies in other 17 Central European countries, namely Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia.

The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Central Europe is a program that ranks 50 fast growing technology companies, based on percentage revenue growth over the previous four years and includes all related industry sectors – communications, environmental technology, fintech, hardware, healthcare and life sciences, media and entertainment, software. The competition provides both established and emerging technology companies the platform to highlight their leading position in their field of activity.
For the Fast 50 2019 edition, winners are selected by ranking their revenue growth for the period 2015-2018. In order to be considered eligible for the main CE Fast 50 ranking, companies must meet several financial criteria. Thus, they will have to have a minimum €50,000 annual operating revenue in the first three years (2015-2017) and at least 100,000 Euro in 2018, be headquartered in Central Europe and own proprietary intellectual property or proprietary technology.

"Technology Fast 50 Central Europe competition has been the powerhouse of many local players that became market leaders, which reinforces Romanian's position at the forefront of innovation in technology not only at CE level, but also worldwide. Companies acknowledge the Fast 50 as a way of gaining regional, European and worldwide recognition," explains Dinu Bumbăcea, Consulting Partner-in-charge, Deloitte Romania, and Local Leader for Technology Fast 50 Central Europe competition.
Romania embarked on the competition's journey in 2008 and since then, 30 local businesses have been either included among the fastest growing 50 companies in Central Europe or awarded with distinctions in special categories, such as "Rising Stars" or "Big 5". For instance, UiPath, a global leader in robotic process automation, was one of the Romanian companies recognized in 2017 with the "Rising Stars" award. The travel agency Vola.ro was awarded for the "Biggest Growth in Central Europe" in 2011 and held the first position for the next two consecutive years.

n 2018, two Romanian companies were present in the fast 50 ranking, Trencadis and Mondly. The first one, specialized in software solutions for the government and business environment, founded in 2007, ranked 13th in the 50 fastest growing, with a revenue growth rate of 730%. The second one, Mondly, a platform that uses cutting-edge technologies like chatbots with voice recognition, augmented and virtual reality to help users learn foreign languages, entered the "Rising Stars" category.
The competition has three categories – "Fast 50", "Rising Stars" and "Big 5" - and two special recognitions - the "Most Disruptive Innovation" and the "Social Impact" award.

The online application and eligibility criteria can be found on the regional Technology Fast 50 website, www.deloitte.com/cefast50. Eligible applicants will automatically enter in the Deloitte EMEA Technology Fast 500 competition.

The application process will close on 31st of July 2019. The ranking results will be announced in October 2019.
