About the CRN Fast50

Now in its 11th year, the CRN Fast50 recognises the fastest-growing companies in the Australian IT channel, based on year-on-year revenue growth. After an entry and judging process running from August to November, we reveal the top 50 companies at a major awards ceremony in Sydney in November 2019.

By adhering to a strictly numbers-based formula, we have ensured that the CRN Fast50 continues to earn respect and recognition as the only awards program in the Australian technology industry that truly recognises the best businesses based on hard numbers.

The 2019 CRN Fast50

And here they are, the 2019 CRN Fast50!

It's our pleasure to present the 2019 CRN Fast50, our tenth annual recognition of Australian IT companies that achieve remarkable growth.

This year we have a big mix of companies from across Australia, with skills in managed services, consulting, software development, networking, security, integration, infrastructure, data centre services, telecommunications and more.

Many companies listed are new businesses that started up just a few years ago and hit the ground running, but there are also others that have been in the same business for a decade or more.

Here we list every company in the CRN Fast50 this year.

We’ve also profiled the top 10 performers, who share a little bit more about their businesses and the secrets to their success, you can find these by browsing the articles section.
