Urjanet, the world’s leading provider of automated utility data, announced that it has been named to Deloitte’s 2017 Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. Urjanet ranked sixth among 14 of Atlanta’s fastest growing companies and 149 overall based on three-year fiscal year revenue growth.
“The Deloitte 2017 North America Technology Fast 500 winners underscore the impact of technological innovation and world class customer service in driving growth, in a fiercely competitive environment,” said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “These companies are on the cutting edge and are transforming the way we do business. We extend our sincere congratulations to all the winners for achieving remarkable growth while delivering new services and experiences for their customers.”
The company attributes its 735 percent growth to a world-class team dedicated to innovation and passionate about delivering solutions that simplify the complexity of utility data for customers. “We’re proud of our continued growth and the recognition that comes with it,” said Urjanet chief executive officer Sanjoy Malik. “Whether our customers are solving the biggest problems in global energy and sustainability management or they are bringing credit to the underbanked with alternative credit scoring, the Urjanet Utility Data Platform is the foundation for access to reliable utility data worldwide.”
Urjanet was also recognized by the Metro Atlanta Chamber (MAC) as one of the first seven companies out of 100 nominees to participate in the Backed By ATL program. The partnership marshals the resources of the MAC to further accelerate the growth and economic impact of the companies selected.
“This kind of recognition demonstrates why companies like Urjanet are an ideal match for the Backed By ATL initiative,” said Jennifer Sherer, MAC’s vice president of Innovation and Entrepreneurship. “Urjanet represents the high growth potential, industry-changing innovation and forward-thinking leadership that will continue to have positive economic impact in metro Atlanta with the right support from our ecosystem.”
The company was also honored earlier this year with a 2017 Pacesetters award by the Atlanta Business Chronicle. The esteemed award recognizes Atlanta’s top 100 fastest-growing private companies. Urjanet ranked among the top 25 companies, and has been honored with this award for three consecutive years.
