More than a dozen medical device, pharmaceutical and diagnostics companies made it to the top 100 of this year’s Deloitte’s Fast 500 Ranking.
Each year, Deloitte compiles the list that highlights 500 of the fastest-growing tech companies in the U.S., as determined by revenue growth as submitted by the company. That means that most of the medical companies on the list were later-stage companies with products on the market.
Here are a few teasers from the top 100:
AxoGen Inc. (NASDAQ:AXGN) – Wants to equip surgeons with better tools to repair and protect peripheral nerves.
Boston Heart Diagnostics – Offers a portfolio of tests designed to identify cardiovascular risk and select the best treatment for each patient.
Merrimack Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ:MACK) – Developing drugs and companion diagnostics for the treatment of cancer. Currently has six oncology drugs in clinical development.
