The "Technology Fast 50"-award goes to Belgium's fastest-growing technology company based on the percentage of revenue growth over the past four years. "We are honored to be a part of this list, all the more because some impressive names accompany us", says Koen Denies, co-founder of Teal Partners. "Entrepreneurship can be a hard path to follow. This recognition ensures that we are on the right track. It gives us a significant energy boost."
According to Jelle Huygen, the team spirit is the foundation of success at Teal Partners. "This nomination is the result of the hard work of our entire team. Every day, our employees prove that you can achieve great things together. In the last months, during the crisis, everyone stepped up a notch. Significantly, almost all our new projects stem from word of mouth."
Teal Partners organizes the company according to the principle of self-management. Koen Denies: "Our culture is not based on the pursuit of fast growth rates. We are strongly committed to autonomy and happiness at work. It is nice to see that our loyalty to this mission translates into rapid growth, without growth being a goal in itself. We want to make things we believe in, with a team of dedicated people."
The "Deloitte Technology Fast 50"-competition helps companies develop their business by increasing their visibility and giving them access to the Fast 50's network of successful executives. Having over 4,500 employees and twelve offices in Belgium, Deloitte is a leader in audit, accounting, legal and tax advice, consultancy, financial advice, and risk advice. The company organizes the competition in collaboration with investment company Fortino, software company NetSuite and Vlerick Business School.

According to Deloitte, these companies earn special recognition and support, given their important role as future growth drivers. The winner will be announced on November 26, 2020.
