STOCKHOLM — Deloitte, together with the Swedish Private Equity & Venture Capital Association, has established the 2007 Sweden Technology Fast 50 award in order to recognize the efforts, dedication and success of the 50 fastest-growing Swedish technology companies. Aptilo Networks has been nominated to this exclusive list which includes both public and private companies.
“We are honoured to be nominated having achieved an 822% growth during the last 5 years,” said Torbjörn Wård, CEO, Aptilo Networks. “But the most satisfying part is that we, since the start of the company in 2001, have managed to become a global leader in the area of next generation systems for management of large scale wireless networks.”
Sweden Technology Fast 50 is the only technology industry award based on an objective ranking of the companies’ actual growth. For the 5th consecutive year, the award is presented at a ceremony taking place on October 25.
The nominees have been selected according to the following criteria:
- Develops technology that can be protected as the company’s intellectual property and constitutes a vital part of the company’s revenue.
- Manufactures technology related products.
- Devotes a high share of their efforts to the research and development of technology.
The successful recipe for Aptilo has been to listen to the market’s needs and customer demands and in a dynamic organization turn this into new products in a much faster pace than competitors. Another critical success factor is that Aptilo has managed to attract a number of leading companies as their strategic partners including, for instance Cisco, HP, IBM and Nortel.
“We already have over 60 customers in the Wi-Fi segment spread over 35 countries and we are currently establishing ourselves in the promising WiMAX market which will have a very rapid growth in the years to come. The prospect to maintain a strong growth also in the future is looking very good,” concluded Wård.
