Hong Kong Technology Fast recognizes the fastest-growing hi-tech companies Hong Kong, with winners eligible to enter the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 China. Rising Star, meanwhile, recognizes leading businesses in their sectors for their growth potential. IOE is one of the top three Technology Fast winners.
HKTF is a sub-program of the Deloitte China Technology Fast 50 Program (China TF50). Once an enterprise reaches HKTF, it automatically becomes eligible to enter the China TF50 Program to compete with peers from every corner of the Chinese Mainland.
Over the years, many companies named in the global Deloitte Technology Fast 50 (Global TF50) have emerged to become international technology giants, with notable winners including Apple, Google, Facebook, Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent, Jingdong and Qihoo 360. With most of its companies at their early growth stages when ranked, the TF50 can also be considered the "Cradle of Rising Stars".
IOE had got the Hong Kong Technology Fast Rising Star award in 2017. Rising Star is a special category that recognizes high-growth companies that have demonstrated astounding business growth, but are too young to be listed in the Technology Fast ranking.
