A word from Deloitte

Our top 50 list this year brings to life a group of companies that are ambitious and diverse. Each year we are inspired to see the sheer quality, capacity and determination of our entrants and the way in which they have built successful businesses. We are delighted to announce that the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 2018 Australia winner is Afterpay Touch Group (Afterpay), a retail consumer brand that offers the ability for customers to purchase everyday items via an affordable instalment plan – splitting a purchase amount over four manageable fortnightly instalments, available both online and in-store. Afterpay achieved a phenomenal 8,134% growth over the three-year period!
