Ann Arbor SPARK announces 2016 and 2017 FastTrack Award applications

Applications are now available for Ann Arbor SPARK’s annual FastTrack Awards, presented to “gazelle” companies with impressive records of growth. Gazelles are companies that consistently achieved 20 percent annual growth.

This year’s FastTrack Awards for both 2016 and 2017 will be presented at the Ann Arbor SPARK Annual Meeting, which will be held on April 24, 2017, at the Eastern Michigan University Student Center in Ypsilanti, Mich. The FastTrack Awards are sponsored by Yeo & Yeo CPAs & Business Consultants.

FastTrack awardees for 2016 are required to have revenue of at least $100,000 in 2012, with an annual growth of 20 percent for the following three years. Recipients of the 2017 FastTrack Award will have revenue of at least $100,000 in 2013, with an annual growth of 20 percent for the following three years.  

Companies will complete separate applications for the 2016 and 2017 FastTrack Awards.  Yeo & Yeo CPAs & Business Consultants will verify all of the award applications. Both of the FastTrack Award applications are available on Ann Arbor SPARK’s website and are due on January 31, 2017.

“The FastTrack Awards are a highly visible way that we recognize this region’s most successful businesses,” said Paul Krutko, president and CEO, Ann Arbor SPARK. “More than just honoring their impressive achievement, FastTrack awards celebrate the impact that these businesses have on our region’s economy. Year over year, FastTrack Award winners are expanding, hiring, and continuing to consistently impact our economic growth and prosperity; our Annual Meeting is the right forum for this recognition.”

This is the first year FastTrack Awards will be presented at Ann Arbor SPARK’s Annual Meeting.   For several years, the FastTrack awards were presented at MLive “Deals of the Year” event, which the media organization announced it would no longer host.
