The Greater Houston Area is home to many high technology companies in key sectors including Information Technology, Life Sciences, Energy and NASA-originated technologies. In acknowledgment of the importance to Houston’s regional economy of having thriving technology companies, PKF Texas and the Houston Business Journal along with Burnett Staffing Specialists, Fox 26 News, the Houston Technology Center, Philips & Reiter, Pierpoint Communications, and the Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship announce the ninth annual FastTech 50 awards. The growth of these 50 companies from fiscal 2007 to fiscal 2008, has propelled the Bayou City’s overall economy and led to the creation of many new jobs.
The 2009 FastTech 50 awards will be given to the 50 high tech companies, which have experienced the greatest percentage revenue growth in 2008. The top executives of the FastTech 50 will be honored at the official awards luncheon in November 2009, where we expect over 700 people to attend. Winners will be announced in the FastTech 50 Special Section of the Houston Business Journal.
