For the third year in a row, PeerStreet is honored to be included on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America. This comes on the heels of PeerStreet winning Crowdfunding Platform of the Year and being named one of the “2021 Best Places to Work in Financial Technology.” Our ranking is based on our 231% fiscal-year revenue growth over the previous three years.
This past year, demand to invest in loans on our platform has remained high and, despite universal decline in interest rates, returns for investors and our cumulative company earnings has continued to grow. In addition to this growth, we’ve had some exciting launches this year. We gave investors the opportunity to invest in multifamily properties, empowering originators, borrowers, and investors alike to capitalize on real estate and meet their financial goals. Additionally, we launched The E.N.U.F. Project in February. This charitable initiative is designed to invest in real estate entrepreneurs from underserved backgrounds who are committed to improving their communities and closing the wealth gap using the power of real estate.
Over the next year, we’re hoping to transform the industry — from the inside out. And we’ve already created a strong foundation to do so. For investors, we’ve started increasing liquidity. We have always sought to make investing in real estate debt as easy as investing in the stock market, and our new Secondary Marketplace is an exciting step in that direction. For originators, we’re giving them a new suite of tools to help scale their businesses. And as an overall brand, we’ve refreshed our company values to give us an even stronger platform for the future growth we’re anticipating.
“Each year the Technology Fast 500 shines a light on leading innovators in technology and this year is no exception,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chair, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “In the face of innumerable challenges resulting from the pandemic, the best and brightest were able to pivot, reinvent and transform and grow. We celebrate the winning organizations and especially the talented employees driving their success.”
“The pandemic has underscored the urgent need for tech solutions in a variety of areas across health care, fintech, energy tech, entertainment, to name a few, so reliance on innovators like the winners of the Technology Fast 500 is more important than ever,” said Christie Simons, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications within Deloitte’s audit & assurance practice. “These companies are not only at the cutting edge, transforming the way we do business, but most importantly, recognize the strategic importance of ongoing innovation, especially in the ever-changing world of technology.”
We’re honored to be included alongside a number of innovative companies and we want to thank our investors, originators, and partners for your continued support.
