If you've ever considered entering the CRN Fast50, this is the year to make your move.
The CRN Fast50 is the Australian IT industry's only awards that adheres to a strictly numbers-based formula – you've worked hard to grow your company, now get recognised for your business acumen.
Each year, the CRN Fast50 unearths plenty of new talent from the channel – in fact, exactly half of last year's crop of companies were first-timers in the list.
This also means that the other 25 companies were repeat entrants. There's no greater evidence of the power of the CRN Fast50 than the fact that so many leading IT firms submit again year after year.
Why do resellers, MSPs, system integrators and cloud providers continue to enter the awards? It's because of the benefits they receive as CRN Fast50 companies.
They get invited to the industry's most exclusive awards night, where they are held up and praised in front of Australia's top IT companies and get to mingle with the leading technology vendors and distributors that sponsor the awards.
They get to share their success with their team, to let their people know they work for a dynamic company that is going places – and to position themselves as an employer of choice.
They get promoted across the CRN network: online, in print, across social media and throughout the year ahead. It's no secret that CRN Fast50 companies typically get more attention and more headlines once they become members of our most important club.
And, perhaps most importantly, they get singled out for deals: customers want to work with them, vendors want to partner with them, distributors want to supply to them, buyers want to acquire them and partners want to align with them.
So make this your year to enter the CRN Fast50 before submissions close on 3 October - don't wait!
