Fort Lauderdale, Florida – (via THE HOSTING NEWS) – August 23, 2005 – Affinity Internet, the leading web services provider for small businesses, has been selected as one of Deloitte and Touche LLP’s 2005 Los Angeles Technology Fast 50 winners.
The Los Angeles Technology Fast 50 ranks the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from 2000-2004.
To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2000 and $1,000,000 in 2004, must be public or private companies headquartered in North America, and be a “technology company,” defined as a company that owns proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company’s operating revenues; or devotes a significant portion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies’ technology in a unique way does not qualify.
Jim Collins, President, Affinity Internet commented on the distinction, “Affinity’s dedication and focus on improved web services for small businesses has not only allowed our company to remain competitive, but grow revenues and customer numbers at a healthy rate. We are excited and honored to have earned a spot on the Technology Fast 50 list, and truly appreciate Deloitte’s recognition of our growth and technological contributions to small business.”
Winners of the 15 regional Technology Fast 50 programs in the United States and Canada are automatically entered in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 program, which ranks North America’s top 500 fastest growing technology companies.
“Deloitte’s Los Angeles Technology Fast 50 companies have shown the strength, vision and temerity to succeed in today’s very competitive technology environment,” said Tim Lovoy, partner, Technology, Media and Telecommunications, Deloitte and Touche LLP. “We applaud the success of Affinity Internet and acknowledge their place as one of the very few to accomplish such a fast growth rate over the past five years.”
