Hyper-growth, people-centric company shows no sign of slowing down, even as it enters third decade of operation
TORONTO, ON/NEW YORK, NY – November 15, 2018 – Celebrating a year that’s been highlighted by a number of new technological achievements, Klick Inc. today announced that it has again been included on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500TM, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy tech companies in North America.
“We’ve had an incredible year thanks to our growing team of Klicksters whose ability to think exponentially, relentlessly transform, and create awesome experiences is beyond compare,” said Klick CEO and Co-Founder Leerom Segal. “We’re proud of our longstanding legacy on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 and we’re thrilled to be on the list of visionary, hyper-growth companies again this year.”
“Congratulations to the Deloitte 2018 Technology Fast 500 winners on this impressive achievement,” said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP, and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “These companies are innovators who have converted their disruptive ideas into products, services and experiences that can captivate new customers and drive remarkable growth.”
Klick’s standing on the Fast 500 list follows a number of important technological advances the organization has announced over the last year. For instance, Klick Health recently developed algorithms that could lay the groundwork for assessing blood glucose levels 30 minutes into the future for people with Type 1 diabetes. The company also collaborated with Boston Children’s Hospital on the HealthVoyagerTM medical education and patient experience platform – using virtual reality technology to bring patients’ individual medical findings to life in a customized, immersive, 3D environment. What’s more, Klick’s Sensei Labs introduced the first enterprise project management solution to codify team members’ qualitative insights and pair them with ambient quantitative data to orchestrate large, complex projects with ease.
“Software, which accounts for nearly two of every three companies on the list, continues to produce some of the most exciting technologies of the 21st century, including innovations in artificial intelligence, predictive analytics and robotics,” said Mohana Dissanayake, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and Industry Leader for technology, media and telecommunications, within Deloitte’s audit and assurance practice. “This year’s ranking demonstrates what is likely a national phenomenon, where many companies from all parts of America are transforming the way we do business by combining breakthrough research and development, entrepreneurship and rapid growth.”
Overall, 2018 Technology Fast 500 companies achieved revenue growth ranging from 143 percent to 77,260 percent from 2014 to 2017, with median growth of 412 percent.
