Smile Digital Health, a leading health data exchange and innovation company, today announced that it has been named to the 2022 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 and North America Technology Fast 500, recognizing it as one of the world's fastest-growing technology companies. The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 specifically recognizes Canada's 50 fastest-growing technology companies based on the revenue-growth percentage over the last four years of operation. The Deloitte North America Technology Fast 500 similarly recognizes the fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America.
"We believe open standards will drive successful innovation and the digital transformation of healthcare and this recognition is a testament to that belief and our goal of better global health," said Duncan Weatherston, Chief Executive Officer, Smile Digital Health. "This achievement can be credited to the talented employees who drive our growth and success on a daily basis by demonstrating the value we bring not only to our customers but to overall healthcare innovation."
Deloitte Technology Fast 50 and Fast 500 companies are driving the growth of Canadian and North American businesses. Last year, Smile was named as one of Canada's Companies-to-Watch in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program. This is the first year Smile has been ranked in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 and the North America Technology Fast 500 programs, where Smile Digital Health ranked 19th and 110th, respectively.
"It's inspiring how this year's exceptional cohort of Technology Fast 50 winners have delivered outstanding revenue growth even in the face of prevailing uncertainties in the economy and marketplace," commented Anders McKenzie, partner and national leader for the Technology Fast 50 program at Deloitte Canada. "Fueled by exemplary innovation, creativity, resilience, adaptability, along with superior business leadership, these companies are paving the way as catalysts in their respective sectors and delivering growth and value to the Canadian economy both at home and beyond."
To qualify for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking, companies must have been in business for at least four years, have revenues of at least $5 million, be headquartered in Canada, own proprietary technology, conduct research, and development activities in Canada and invest a minimum of 5% of gross revenues in R&D. Eligibility in the Fast 500 category requires applicants to meet the same criteria as for Technology Fast 50 nominees except that the revenue is measured in USD. To be qualified, candidates must devote a significant portion of their operating revenues to creating proprietary technology or intellectual property.
"This year's Technology Fast 500 list is a true reflection of some of today's most determined and inspiring pioneers who have prospered by anticipating what's next, understanding what's needed to succeed and driving creativity forward," said Christie Simons, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications within Deloitte's audit and assurance practice. "Representing all facets of technology, the winners have shown they not only have the vision but can also expertly manage their companies through rapid growth. We congratulate each winner on their impressive achievements."
