"It may not be surprising that a common trait of Fast 500 leaders is their sense of confidence in securing capital to maintain and grow their business," said Mark Jensen, managing partner, venture capital services, Deloitte & Touche LLP. "But it does serve as a good reminder that regions that lay the groundwork for strong local venture markets will be able to attract innovative, high-growth companies regardless of the economic climate."
From a regional perspective, 36 percent of the Technology Fast 500 companies are from the West, with California once again as the standout with 143 companies on the list. States in the Northeast and the Southeast also have a significant concentration of Technology Fast 500™ companies, with 28 percent and 14 percent, respectively.
