Technology Fast 50 is a Deloitte competition that takes place annually in several countries around the world. The award recognises the 50 fastest growing technology companies, based on a variety of factors, including percentage of growth over the last 5 years. Fast 50 Awards recognise growth driven by leading intellectual property and are a celebration of innovation and entrepreneurship. The winner receives recognition from their peers and industry experts for having achieved sustainable success over the last five years.
Already in it's 15th year in other countries like the UK, this year was SA's first competition. The Fast 50 winners are also entered into the Deloitte Fast 500 competition of fasting growing technology companies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
We relished the opportunity to measure ourselves against our competitors and other innovative companies in the technology sector. It was also a chance to compare our vision of empowering our clients and delivering world class service against the driving values of other competing companies.
Afrihost is extremely proud to have placed 1st in South Africa's Fast 50 division (and to be the very first SA winner of this award), and 168th in the International Fast 500 competition.
Our CEO, Gian Visser, said “This award is a great compliment to the other awards we have received, but we also hope it will inspire other companies in our sector to start looking at their clients differently, and changing the way they structure their services and business models.”
This award is a testament to the service and work ethic of the entire Afrihost team - whose dedication to our clients is the cornerstone of our business. Well done to everyone at Afrihost HQ!
