COLO-D, a Canada–based company designing, developing and operating flexible data center solutions with clients including cloud providers, financial institutions, government agencies and large enterprises, has ranked 3rd in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program award for its “rapid revenue growth, entrepreneurial spirit and bold innovation.”
The Technology Fast 50 program and annual award distinguishes 50 Canadian technology companies with the highest revenue-growth percentage over the past four years. COLO-D grew 10,942 percent during this period.
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program winners consist of public and private companies in the technology sector – companies that have transformed the industry. Now in its 21st year, the Fast 50 program runs alongside the broader Deloitte North American Technology Fast 500, with winners automatically eligible for this elite ranking.
According to COLO-D’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Patrick David, COLO-D’s ability to deliver data center solutions for the ever-evolving needs of the hyperscale cloud service provider has fueled the company’s 10,942 percent revenue growth. “COLO-D is constantly looking to develop next-generation environments via the most innovative technologies to fulfill the customer’s need to go to market quickly,” said Mr. David.
To qualify for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking, companies must have been in business for at least four years, have revenues of at least $5 million, be headquartered in Canada, own proprietary technology, conduct research and development activities in Canada and invest a minimum of five percent of gross revenues in R&D.
