Marcum Tech Top 40 Award

Named Connecticut’s Fastest Growing Software Company, Square 9 Accepts 2014 Marcum Tech Top 40 Award

With a 448% four year growth performance, Square 9 secures the Software category as overall winner.

NEW HAVEN, CONN., October 3, 2014 – Sponsored by the Connecticut Technology Council and Marcum LLP, the seventh annual Marcum Tech Top 40 has recognized Square 9 Softworks as the fastest growing software company in Connecticut. Square 9 was awarded for its tremendous 448% growth over a four year revenue run rate from 2010 through 2013, marking Square 9’s second consecutive year as an honoree.

The Marcum Tech Top 40 recognizes the fastest growing privately and publicly owned technology companies throughout the state. Honorees must have accumulated at least $3M in annual revenues while demonstrating an impressive record of growth in each of the preceding four years.

As the developer of the award-winning SmartSearch Document Management suite, Square 9 led 14 companies to top the software category – the largest industry sector of the event – by demonstrating the greatest percentage of growth in revenue across all the technology verticals. Square 9 is positioned to reach record growth again in 2015, with a strong emphasis on the development of solution initiatives to meet emerging business needs and complement evolving trends in technology.

“Receiving this recognition from Marcum and the Connecticut Technology Council is a tremendous honor for the entire team here at Square 9,” stated Stephen Young, President and CEO of Square 9 Softworks. “While it took a strong team effort to build this type of momentum, much of the credit is also due to the strong channel of distribution partners we’ve built across North America. Without them, none of this would be possible,” Young added.

Earlier this year, Square 9 was nationally recognized on Inc. Magazine’s coveted Inc. 5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the fastest growing private companies in America. The Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) also spotlighted Square 9 as one of the fastest growing businesses located in America’s inner cities. Most recently, the Marcum Tech Top 40 award concludes an incredible year in recognition for Square 9.

“The annual Marcum Tech Top 40 gives us the opportunity not only to see innovation first-hand but also to recognize how Connecticut’s fastest growing technology companies are overcoming complex challenges to achieve success,” said Anthony P. Scillia, Partner-in-Charge, Marcum New England. “Marcum is extremely proud to partner with the Connecticut Technology Council on this outstanding program again this year and enthusiastically congratulates all the winners.”

The October 2 awards program included an exhibition featuring each of the 2014 Marcum Tech Top 40 companies, which included fellow honorees Gartner Inc., and Alexion Pharmaceuticals.
