Some of North America’s fastest-growing tech companies are based right here in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. New York-based Deloitte released its "2017 Technology Fast 500" rankings on Nov. 9, a list of the fastest-growing tech companies with headquarters in North America. Eight companies on the list are based in the DFW area. In total, 17 Texas-based companies made the list.

“The North Texas region has increasingly become a hotspot for technology, bolstered by robust talent and a growing economy,” Jason Downing, North Texas managing partner and central region marketplace leader for Deloitte, said in a prepared statement. “This year, the Dallas-Fort Worth area was well-represented among today’s leading technology companies, all of which are helping cultivate innovation, entrepreneurship and emerging technologies in the region and beyond.”

The global consulting firm examined percent growth in revenue of private and public companies between 2013 and 2016 to create the rankings. To make the list, companies were required to be in business for at least four years, have at least $50,000 in operating revenue in 2013 and have current-year operating revenues of at least $5 million.

Blucora, one of the companies on the list, is based in Irving.
