The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 is now in its seventh year and once again we are delighted to recognise the 50 most dynamic and fastest growing technology companies in Australia. Mobile Data Group began life in early 2005 as an outsourced solution for the development of mobile content and applications. However, the company has now become a premier content house producing branded ready to-use ring-tones, wallpapers, videos and games, reverse auctions and voting systems. Mobile Data Group has an established distribution base in over 30 countries and their creative products reach over one billion users. Mobile Data Group’s win brings to prominence the significance of mobile content providers in the Fast 50. This year three of the top ten fastest growing technology companies are in the mobile content space, with m.Net Corporation Limited (ranked 5th) and Tiger Spike Pty Limited (ranked 8th) appearing along side Mobile Data Group.
We’d also like to congratulate wireless telecommunications company Big Air Group Limited for their second consecutive appearance in the top ten. Big Air debuted last year in fourth place and this year is ranked third with 1,528% growth. Consecutive appearances in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 are notable, in fact half the Fast 50 companies listed this year also made it into the Fast 50 in previous years. Remarkably, Seek Limited is placed in the Fast 50 for a record sixth consecutive year . . . an amazing achievement.
