Connecticut Technology Council and Marcum LLP announce 2018 Marcum Tech Top 40 companies

Awards honor state’s 40 Fastest Growing Tech Companies a part of ConnectiTECH Awards October 3

HARTFORD, CT (August 15, 2018) – The Connecticut Technology Council (CTC) and Marcum LLP today announce the 2018 Marcum Tech Top 40, the annual recognition of the fastest growing technology companies in Connecticut. This year’s group of top-ranked companies will be honored at the new ConnectiTECH Awards event at the Connecticut Convention Center on October 3. A complete list of companies is available online at, as well as below.

The Marcum Tech Top 40 has honored over 400 Connecticut-based technology and tech-enabled companies since 2008. The awards recognize technology leaders in six industry sectors: Advanced Manufacturing; Energy and Environmental; Life Sciences; New Media, Internet, and Telecom; IT Services; and Software. Tech Top 40 companies are both privately and publicly held, must have at least $3 million in annual revenue, and a demonstrated record of revenue growth in each of the preceding four years.

2018’s honorees are a diverse set of businesses from around the state. Eleven companies are publicly traded, and eight have over than $1 billion in annual revenue. Two younger companies, Farmington’s Diameter Health and Stamford’s Link AKC will be honored at the Tech Top 40 as Accelerators, a classification reserved for companies that successfully scaled to $3 million in revenue in fewer than three years.

“Marcum is extremely proud to partner with the Connecticut Technology Council to present the Marcum Tech Top 40 Awards which honor some of Connecticut’s most innovative companies,” said Michael K. Brooder, CPA, Marcum’s office managing partner in Hartford, Connecticut. “This annual program over the past 11 years has allowed us a fascinating glimpse into the forward thinking that keeps Connecticut on the forefront of technology innovation and business leadership. We heartily congratulate this year’s class of winners and look forward to watching their continuing contributions to Connecticut’s business environment.”

Bruce Carlson, CTC’s President and CEO added, “Growth in Connecticut must and does come from the technology sector, and these Marcum Tech Top 40 companies are exemplary of the achievements within the industry we represent in the state. As part of the ConnectiTECH Awards, the Marcum Tech Top 40 lauds the leaders in tech in Connecticut, and inspires more to follow suit.”

To date, this year’s event sponsors include: Marcum LLP and Shipman & Goodwin LLC, with support from Webster Bank.

The October 3 awards program will include the presentation of the Marcum Tech Top 40 Awards, as well as two new honors: the Most Disruptive Technology and Coolest Tech Workplace Awards. These awards are designed to stimulate the celebration of rising tech businesses and innovators and showcase the culture of technology in Connecticut in conjunction with the Marcum Tech Top 40.
