Accounting and consulting firm Deloitte just released its 2022 Technology Fast 500 list, which ranks the fastest-growing technology and life sciences companies in North America. The 28th annual list featured 32 companies from the Boston area. Forty Boston companies were named to the list last year.

“This year, 32 Massachusetts companies are recognized by the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 program. Three of those are in the top 10 nationally,” Kevin Gauthier, Audit & Assurance partner with Deloitte & Touche, said in a statement. “We’ve seen 182 winners in our area over the past five years; this ongoing market performance spotlights our extraordinary regional infrastructure for growth and our local high-caliber tech talent. Cheers to the winners.”

Companies on the list were chosen based on their fiscal year revenue growth between 2018 and 2021 and ranked based on their percentage growth rate. The technology sector, as well as the media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech and energy tech industries, are represented on the list.
