Selection and qualifying criteria
The Technology Fast 500 award winners are selected based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth during the period from 2012 to 2014 (or 2013 to 2015 for a financial year ending between January and June). Eligibility for the Technology Fast 500 requires that companies own proprietary intellectual property or technology that is sold to customers in products that contribute to a majority of the company’s operating revenues. Companies must have base-year operating revenues of at least US$50,000. Additionally, companies must be in business for a minimum of three years, and be headquartered within Asia Pacific. This ranking is compiled from nominations submitted directly to the Technology Fast 500 program, and public company database research.
