STAMFORD, Conn., August 23, 2018 (Newswire.com) - The Connecticut Technology Council (CTC) and Marcum LLP today announce the 2018 Marcum Tech Top 40, the annual recognition of the fastest-growing technology companies in Connecticut. This year’s group of top-ranked companies will be honored at the new ConnectiTECH Awards event at the Connecticut Convention Center on Oct. 3. MediaCrossing will be honored with 39 other companies and two accelerator award-winners as the class of 2018. This is MediaCrossing’s third year on the list; in 2017, the company topped the Marcum Tech Top 40.
The Marcum Tech Top 40 has honored over 400 Connecticut-based technology and tech-enabled companies since 2008. The awards recognize technology leaders in six industry sectors: Advanced Manufacturing; Energy and Environmental; Life Sciences; New Media, Internet and Telecom; IT Services; and Software. MediaCrossing has been named a Tech Top 40 in the New Media/Internet/Telecom category. MediaCrossing is a recipient of this award due to strong revenue growth of at least $3 million in annual revenue as well as growth in each of the preceding four years.
2018’s honorees are a diverse set of businesses from around the state. Eleven companies are publicly traded and eight have over than $1 billion in annual revenue. Two younger companies, Farmington’s Diameter Health and Stamford’s Link AKC, will be honored at the Tech Top 40 as Accelerators, a classification reserved for companies that successfully scaled to $3 million in revenue in fewer than three years.After being named the fastest-growing company on last year's list, we're excited to be named to the Marcum Tech Top 40 for a third consecutive year. It's a strong indicator of how great the demand for digital and hyper-local advertising is today. We're looking forward to the new format of this year's event, and especially to meeting and congratulating the 2018 honorees.
