The CRN Fast50 are the only awards in the Australian IT channel purely based on business performance.
At CRN, we are laser-focused on the Australian channel. We love our advertisers, but with the CRN Fast50, we don't simply hand awards to global vendors or other companies who spend money with us.
No, with the CRN Fast50, business acumen is the only currency that counts. The best-performing IT solution providers earn their positions through hard work and ingenuity.
The CRN Fast50 recognises entrepreneurs and technical experts, companies who are the best at reselling high-tech products and crafting services around them.
In June, we hosted a launch party for the 'CRN Fast50 alumni' - past companies to have appeared on the list over its six-year history. Guest speaker Steve Vamos, former boss of Apple Australia, Microsoft Australia and ninemsn, said that revenue growth remains one of the best ways to value the worth of a company. Good advice from a non-executive director at Telstra, which has itself acquired two past Fast50 companies – NSC Group and Bridge Point Communication.
CRN is not alone in acknowledging these incredible channel business people. Past CRN Fast50 companies such as Dataweave, Outware Mobile, Uber Global, Crucial and eStore all secured the ultimate recognition – they were each acquired in 2015.
