Congratulations to Kollabra!

I’d like to take the opportunity to congratulate Kollabra on its recent win. Kollabra, which is a freelance client of mine, made the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 list for 2005. This is a substantial success for a rapidly growing company.

Kollabra develops custom engineering solutions for a wide variety of companies across North America. With a mix of full-time and contract employees that is 25 strong, Kollabra has a federated team structure that enables fast, flexible solution delivery.

The Deloitte Technology Fast 500 is a great benchmark for success. Companies named to the Fast 500 have to develop innovative technology solutions – they can’t repurpose existing technology in an “innovative” manner. These contenders have to bring a five-year operating history to the table. Revenue for the first year must exceed US$50,000, and revenue for the fifth year must exceed US$1 million.
