Australian companies made up 30 per cent of the top 20 companies in the Deloitte's 2017 Asia Pacific Technology Fast 500 and 18 per cent of the entire list.

Hireup, the disability support worker organisation based in Sydney, ranked second on the list – backing up its win in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 Australia list.

Some Australian fintech players included in the list are zipMoney (7th), Metamako (69th) and ClickSend (73rd).

Software companies dominated the Tech Fast 500, accounting for 42 per cent of the list.

“The Asia-Pacific region offers huge opportunities for Australian growth companies looking to scale up their operations and expand overseas,” said Deloitte Australia’s Tech Fast 50 lead partner Josh Tanchel.

“It is seen by many as a launch pad to the rest of the world so it’s fantastic to see so many Australian companies competing at this level and featuring in the Fast 500,” Mr Tanchel said.
