A total of 16 companies from Poland ranked in the main 'Fast 50' category. Most of the companies (19 in total) come from the Czech Republic. As was the case in 2020, Polish and Czech companies held a total of 70% place in the rankings. The third spot went to Slovakia, represented by five companies. The "Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Central Europe" ranking also includes companies from Croatia (4), Bulgaria (2) and one each from Lithuania, Estonia, Albania and Slovenia.
Agnieszka Zielińska, partner in the Financial Advisory Department and leader of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Program in Poland said: “As many as 450 companies applied for this year's edition, compared to 150 less a year ago. This shows best how Central European technology companies are becoming strong, competitive and growing fast. As could be expected, the catalyst for such dynamic growth for many of them was the pandemic, which forced almost every industry to invest in technology to a much greater extent than it was before.”
