David Stark, Deloitte Private Leader said, “It is exciting to see the pool of companies participating in this year’s program with regional entrepreneurs exploring a wide variety of fields and developing innovative solutions that address different business challenges. The second edition of Fast 50 is a great showcase of Deloitte’s commitment to supporting the technology sector which is more vital than ever for the region’s economic development.”

As part of the Technology Fast 50 program, Deloitte also provides the Rising Star accolade, dedicated to companies that show great potential, but have been trading for less than three years and don’t meet the ranking criteria. The Rising Star list featured UAE-based EdTech company, Englease, and Sure Payment, the Saudi Arabian Fintech. 

The program also grants the Impact accolade for companies that have an Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) element at the heart of their mission. Leading the Impact ranking in the second edition is the Oman-based 44.01, which eliminates CO2 by turning it into rock followed by the Lebanon-based non-profit organization, CodeBrave.

The second edition of Technology Fast 50 also features a section covering Companies to Watch, which recognizes the innovation and achievements of some businesses who are leading the way but do not meet the program’s criteria yet. The top two spots in this category were claimed by Saudi-based Algooru and UAE-based Allinners.
